Captain Sabertooth is the undisputed lord of the seas -- and gold is his passion! In this magical animated adventure from Norway, the Captain and his crew take a rollicking old-fashioned pirate journey in search of Gruesome Gabriel's treasure. Pinky is the impressionable cabin boy who longs to make Captain Sabertooth proud by growing up to become a real pirate. But when Pinky learns the truth about the captain's ruthless plans for the seaport town of Kjuttaviga, he teams with a local girl, Sunniva, to take on Captain Sabertooth, recover the treasure, and save the town.
