Set against the background of the American War of Independance, Turn follows the story of spies in service for Washintgon, in order to fight off the british from the colonies.
In Setauket, Long Island, Abraham "Abe" Woodhull, son of the magistrate, tries to build a quiet life for himself. But with his childhood love, Anna Strong, he gets involved in the machinations to spy on the local troops. His friends Caleb and Benjamin both serve in the Continental Army, and they enlist him and Anna in the service as the spy network is being build around New York.
Now the series does take some serious liberties, like Abe and Anna having an affair, even thought the historical counterparts where both unmarried and had a big age difference.
Never the less, it's a very enjoyable show, and worth watching!
