A schooner filled with treasure leaves the troubled city of Lima, Peru, bound for the safety of Spain. But the treasure is soon stolen by pirates who make off with it to the infamous Cocos Island near Costa Rica. The pirates bury the treasure in one of its many covers, making a map so that they could go back of it. Years later, well after the golden age of piracy is over, a young man comes across the forgotten treasure map.
