Jade has a gift, whenever she touches something she has visions that transport her back in time. These visions deal with the history of the object that she touches. When her friend, antique dealer, Alma, finds a pocket watch, Jade uses her gift to help find out the history of the object. Jade travels from current times through the Civil War all the way back to the Revolutionary War following the lives and deaths of the family members who have 'touched' the watch and thus imbued it with their memories. While discovering the history of this family they also discover that a treasure was buried and just might still be there. So they embark on a journey to find the treasure but end up getting involved with a local murder and considered possible suspects in the murder. It is up to them to figure out, using Jade's gift, who the true murderer is and to find the treasure.
