Summary:
Captain John Rackham, called Calico Jack, a pirate who marauded the Caribbean seas, is wanted by the government on counts of piracy. He makes a surprise visit to the governor's residence and asks for pardon for his men. A deal is brokered, but the governor does not reveal that Jack, s beloved fiancee has become betrothed to the governor himself. Jack discovers he has been deceived and publicly threatens the governor, then locks swords with a notorious Frenchman. All seems lost until Anne Bonney, a buxom Irish woman, comes to his rescue and sets about planning one of the most audacious lootings in the Caribbean.
