Family life isn’t perfect for our hero Jim, who is dealing with his parent’s divorce. Jim takes comfort in his nautical artifacts, like his model ships and treasure chests. But Jim’s imaginary world collides with reality when a real pirate from 1718 appears in his bedroom. Kidnapped by Captain Freely, the fearless female pirate who is at war with the naval Captain McGovern, Jim is transported back in time to solve the mystery of the disappearing treasure. In his adventures, Jim learns more about himself and leads the way to a peaceful reconciliation between the two captains.
