Taking Jamaica is one thing, but keeping it under retaliation and constant bombardment by the Spanish corsairs is another. The indentured settlers must form an alliance with the Buccaneers, masters of hunting and guerrilla warfare along with: “The Dutchman,” Edward Mansvelt: Jacquotte Delahay, a beautiful but deadly outlaw; ruthless pirates Roc Braziliano and Bartolomeo el Portugues; and French privateers, l’Olonnais and Pierre le Picard, aptly named “The Flail of the Spanish.”
While defending Jamaica’s shores, the group forms Frères de la cote, but their band of brothers lacks a clear leader. That all changes when Captain Henry Morgan arrives to take charge of their newly renamed pirate base “Port Royal.”

But, when peace is established between England and Spain, Morgan, loyal to England and his own devices, must turn on his mates and denounce them as criminals.
Two young women, Esmeralda Belford and Bizy Gale, on a quest for adventure, mistakenly join the remaining “Brethren,” themselves hunted by the Spanish, Dutch, and Morgan’s pirate hunters.
