What starts out as a normal trip to the beach for the Jacobs family ends up as a journey that only a truly uninhibited imagination can dream up. Based on Melinda Long’s wildly popular children’s book ‘How I Became A Pirate’, this brand new adaptation features all of the characters we Landlubbers have come to appreciate without any of the scariness other pirate tales might possess.
