Five courageous people sail away with the boat Seahorse into the pirate swarming Mediterranean Sea. The team of the notorious, fearless Pergean sisters; Azra, Laçin and Ziçan are accompanied with Türkmen Selim; the mule guider who fell in love with the sea and Homer; the old Greek with a giant heart. All together, they track down the brigands who kidnapped their loved ones- and get in the way of the terrifying Ottoman galleys instead.
