In this high-seas adventure, a dashing pirate and his loyal crew take on a wicked king forced his way onto the throne with his own bad pirates. The newly empowered villain kidnaps the daughter of the deposed Duke and forces her into marriage. Fortunately, the good pirates attack on her wedding day. A long, bloody battle takes place while the palace women, including the bride take refuge in the dungeon. The conniving leader ruthlessly orders the dungeon flooded, but fortunately, the good pirate manages to save all the women, while the bad one finds himself impaled by his own booby-trap.
