Five seemingly unrelated voyagers find themselves united by the same tragic destiny. Five people, on separate journeys for very different reasons, happen to be crossing the bridge at San Luis Rey at noon on the fateful day of July 20th, 1714. The bridge breaks and all five plummet to their deaths in the deep gorge below. Was it an accident? Or were they, in some strange way, to blame, for the tragedy that cut short their lives. Told entirely in flashback, the period drama reveals the lives and backstories of these five people killed in a disaster, in Peru, the day the San Luis Rey bridge collapsed.
