Treasure Island

Young Jim Hawkins is happy working at his mum's tavern - even though he isn't terribly popular with the locals. He's also head over heels in love with the Squire's only daughter - even though she was cursed to become a fish on her seventeenth birthday. One day, a strange pirate brings a map that indicates the location of a vast treasure. When Jim discovers that the loot also includes a magic voodoo amulet that can cure his beloved's curse, he embarks on a great adventure to find this mysterious island on which the treasure is buried. Like every great hero, hr travels with courage, with determination, and with his mum.

However not all is smooth sailing. Among the ship's crew is a group of dastardly cutthroats led by the enigmatic Long John Swagger. Unfortunately for Jim, his mother and their friends, the pirates also want to get their hands on the treasure and they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.
