Cast & Crew
In the 17th century, people of a tiny Caribbean island refuse to pay tribute to their tyrannical Spanish rulers, and as a result they are attacked and massacred by the soldiers of the villainous Guzman. Two boys, Jean and Michel, escape and make their way to a pirate ship. Years later, and now officers of the Black Witch , they plan to overthrow the colonial government and avenge the massacre. In an unsuccessful raid, Jean is wounded, and Michel is captured. Jean is nursed back to health by Elisa, the island governor's daughter, but Michel turns traitor and joins Guzman in a plot to capture Jean and his pirates. Also in the plot is the fiery Delores, who wants revenge on Jean for having rebuffed her. But Michel, Delores, and Guzman are all killed in their effort to capture the pirates; and Jean and Elisa are free to continue their courtship.
