The tale takes place on the island of new Providence in the Bahamas in 1715. This unique place of piracy, theft and outlaws is reigned by the fearsome prate captain Edward Teach (Malkovich) known as Blackbeard. But a scheme has been designed to throw Blackbeard from his throne. An assassin, Tom Lowe, is sent with the task to execute the pirate leader. However, as Lowe moves closer towards Blackbeard, he starts to admire his ideas and involvement in the rogue society. And of course, Lowe will not be Blackbeard’s only enemy.
