Samuel is reunited with his older sister Elizabeth when his world is suddenly turned upside down during a pirate brawl. Before Captain Fletcher is slain in the fight, he entrusts a mysterious key and map to Samuel. Samuel and his misfit crew set out to uncover the secret. On their journey, the crew encounters romance, magic, betrayal, and a chance at treasure beyond imagination...if they can evade the deadly captain Jean Lafitte and his crew. “
