Joshua Devlin is a ten-year old boy living on the west coast of England in 1988. An adventurous lad who finds a cave and a boat. He takes the boat out of the cave where one of the oars breaks and he is swept out to sea. A day later he is picked up by an old sailing ship. This is no ordinary ship. He learns that he has somehow been swept back in time.
Trapped in time he learns the way of a sailor, the way of a buccaneer while fallling in love with the beautiful Maria, a young Spanish girl. She in turn loves him but both realise their love is but forlorn optimism as they belong to different classes.
They live in hope that one day Joshua will find a treasure and become rich, and thereby have some justification in asking for Maria's hand in marriage. Although Joshua knows that this world was not really his, he chooses to ignore the warnings in his own mind.
Eventually he is betrayed by his best friend, thus, changing his life forever.
