Plot Summary

Haakon Haakonsen didn't want to go to sea so young, but when his father, a Norwegian sailor, comes home with a badly wounded foot in the 1850s, the Haakonsen family finances require him to enlist as ship boy aboard a British ship under Royal Navy authority. After some hazing he buckles up to learn the hard work and gets accepted by the rough crew. Then Royal Navy lieutenant John Merrick is welcomed to take charge of security on a long voyage to Sidney and Calcutta, through pirates-infested waters, but Haakon distrusts him after finding out that he packed concealed weapons; indeed Merrick secretly poisons the captain. Haakon and his guardian angel, his father's best mate Jens, were about to feel the claw of the cat for helping a stowaway when a rock wrecks the ship. Haakon washes up an island where he finds a pirates treasure and weapons. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia A dramatization by Norwegian author O. V. Falck-Ytter's "Haakon Haakonsen. En norsk Robinson" (Haakon Haakonsen. A Norwegian Robinson), an action-adventure story aimed at youths, it was inspired by Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe" and published in 1873. See more »
Goofs While the movie is set in the 1850's, there are several anachronisms in the uniforms and ships (too new, most likely from the 1890's), weapons (too old, around 1800's) and the major plot of pirates themselves, that had stopped being an issue by time. See more »
