Synopsis

Adventure. Black Harry Adams is killed by his brother Dawg, but not without leaving his strong-minded daughter Morgan part of a treasure map that is tattooed on his scalp. Morgan rallies Harry's old crew to help her find the legendary CutThroat Island, where a huge hoard is said to await them. Reaching Jamaica, she buys rascally, charming prisoner William Shaw at a slave auction, because of his knowledge of Latin (in which the treasure map is written.) A second piece of the map is obtained and the island identified. However, her wicked uncle is also after the treasure.
