When Jake persuades his family to embark on a sailing-camping holiday on a Tasmania island, he is mostly interested in pirate fantasies and his home-built sailing dinghy. But he does not plan on events which are to leave him isolated with his brother and sister, and a couple of Kiwi kids.
Ultimately, after being forced to dig deep into their personal reserves, the treasures they all gain from their experiences are very different from the ones that Jake has set out to find.
