While the Port Royal governor wants so badly the lady pirate, Morgan Adams, and will pay well for her, Dawg Brown (Frank Langella) was grabbing Morgan's father Black Harry (Harris Yulin) to take the first piece of a map (split into three separate pieces) to Cutthroat Island, where a treasure of a Spanish gold ship is said to be buried there
Each of the other sections of the map is held by Morgan's two uncles: Dawgthe bad pirate who doesn't want to share the treasurehas the second piece stolen from a now-deceased brother, and Mordachai holds the third at Spittlefied Harbor
So to seek the Spanish Treasure and to avenge her father's death, Morgan (Geena Davis) has to join with her uncle Mordachai and fight her murderous uncle to obtain the third part of the map
The governor of the island (Patrick Malahide) offers Morgan two alternatives: One, an ignominious death on the gallows or she might cut him in for a share of her grandfather's treasure
At the slave market, Morgan was looking for a man who can read Latin So she picked a handsome convict who passes himself off as a physician with a natural pitch for music and a perfect taste in wine His name was William Shaw (Matthew Modine).
