Summary, etc.:
Michael Caine stars as an investigative writer for a news magazine who doggedly tracks down one of the most baffling mysteries of modern times - the disappearance of pleasure craft and passengers from one area of the Caribbean. It is in this area of the sea that descendants of seventeenth-century buccaneers, trapped in a time warp, persist in their marauding ways. Caine is captured by these pirates who need his services to help improve their degenerated gene pool. Caine's twelve-year-old son is converted to the pirates' heathen ways and turns against his father in this super thriller from the author of "Jaws" and "The Deep."
