The show revolves around Wobik. Wobik is the Canadian province of Quebec. The province is full of indigenous people. The church in France sends Jesuit priests to convert these people into Christianity. Along with the priests, France sends other people with the King’s daughter to Wobik. The motto behind being, populate the colony and convert everyone living there. The daughters of the King will marry the men there, and start Catholic families.
