It is the year 1789 and Fletcher Christian is the first officer of the HMS Bounty, commanded by Captain William Bligh, the cruelest foreman of the Seven Seas. Bligh’s villainy knows no limits and is even willing to whip a dead man if that strengthens his control over the crew. During a trip back to England after a voyage through the South Seas, Bligh’s cruelties surpass what Christian is willing to endure and, after the captain indirectly provokes the death of the on-board doctor, Fletcher prepares a riot of the crew. They achieve their goal and Bligh ends up with his loyal officers in a drifting boat. With great audacity and willpower, he managed to navigate the small ship for 49 days until he reached the Dutch East Indies without losing a single man.
