In 1930, in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, whilst serving as a guide for a Hollywood producer, a young Errol Flynn discovers a map on a dead prospector that he believes will lead to a fortune in gold.
Back on the streets of Depression-era Sydney, Flynn rounds up a ragtag crew including Rex, a Canadian ex-bootlegger, Dook, an English gentleman handy with a pistol and Charlie, a grizzled old salt. After stealing the Sirocco, a yacht belonging to Chinese Opium smugglers, Flynn and crew set sail. They quickly learn just how treacherous a voyage up the Australian east coast can be, running afoul of drunken cowboys, corrupt cops and local thugs before being intercepted by Chinese pirates, who are hell bent on retrieving the Sirocco and the several pounds of opium stashed in its hold.
As the motley crew make a final dash for New Guinea, Flynn is forced to learn what it means to be a real captain, and a master of his own destiny.
