The Last Black Sea Pirates swim in testosterone and rugged tenderness in a land of wilderness and legends, far from civilization. For 20 years, Captain Jack The Whale and his crew have been drinking, dreaming and hunting for a treasure buried in the gully of Karadere, the pristine beach they call home. But someone else has got wind of Karadere's treasures. When news of imminent change begin to find its way to this remote oasis, the pirates' world begins to unravel. Doubts erode the foundations of trust, conflicts brew, tensions are on the rise. In this crisis, emerges a contemporary fairy tale about the treasures we hunt and those that we find. Written by
Lord of the Flies type existence on a Black Sea beach with a mob of would be pirates ever hopeful to find the hidden treasure left somewhere on in the bay by a real pirate of the Ottoman empire. The mob's sense of friendship and bonding is depicted affectionately and with humour. The members of the mob are bound together through their need to escape from the realities of the life off the beach and by the eternal hope and expectation that any day now they will find the gold that will transform their lives. So they dig and they plan how to spend the money. This wonderful story, beautifully told, seldom feels like a documentary. These are sympathetic characters faced with insoluble problems. Their escape from reality is only possible as long as they stay together.
