Plot

In 1763, Captain Edward Reynolds (Evan Stone) is hunting pirates, or at least trying to do so. He does not consider himself a great commander, and neither do most of his crew. Only his first officer, Jules (Jesse Jane), believes in him. When they save a young woman named Isabella (Carmen Luvana) from drowning, she tells them that her husband's ship has been destroyed by the feared Captain Victor Stagnetti (Tommy Gunn) and his crew of cutthroat pirates.

Reynolds and his crew go hunting for Stagnetti, who tries to find a map that leads to a powerful secret on an island somewhere in the Caribbean Sea. Stagnetti finds the secret "staff" unlocked by Isabella's husband Manuel (Kris Slater).

After the crew escapes the spawn of darkness summoned by Stagnetti, their ship engages Stagnetti's in battle, ending Stagnetti's reign as a pirate.
