Drumlin Bay, Cornwall, 1790s - Tamsyn Trelawney (Lucy Speed) is the greatest smuggler in all of Cornwall. However, things would be a bit easier if her drunken father Jago (John Bowe) stopped claiming her successes as her own.

Tamsyn often has to face trouble with the local authorities, in particular ruthless Captain Marriot (Andrew McGibbon). Things change however with the new arrival of Major Thomas Falconer (Cameron Stewart), who refuses to believe that a woman could be responsible for all the smuggling however and therefore she usually manages to avoid capture.
