A young pirate-in-training shadows his dad as his father chases down the man who stole his cargo. Confronted with cannons, the young pirate fears their tiny 15-man crew will die quickly, but his father shows him a magic more powerful than all the cannon fire in the world. The only problem? It’s not iron and cotton the other pirate stole.
It’s precious human life.
