The French pirate L'OLLONAIS has just left the west coast of Africa, also called the "Gold Coast." He's sailing a ship called "The Unicorn." It's the year 1664.
His men are impatient and he hopes to find a merchant ship from which he can loot for gold and jewels, or even slaves. He doesn't care. He's the meanest pirate that has ever sailed the waters of Africa to the Spanish Main.
But, he won't have to wait for long, because a Swedish colony ship is soon going to trespass his route. It's the ship "Zumbi" and the captain is called Adolf Fredrik Hansen. Soon it's time for a fierce sea battle.
The Unicorn has an edge -- it is a small pirate sloop and can manouver much faster than the slow Swedish slaver, which will try to get a good angle for its cannons to fire at L'Ollonais.
Dark clouds are covering the sky. Seagulls have started to fly low. A mysterious light comes from the distant horizon. It's the grim French pirate who is approaching. He has seen Captain Hansen and his crew. He will not take any prisoners. After having slaughtered the slave trader Adolf Fredrik Hansen and his men, L'Ollonais finds a piece from a treasure map that he has been searching for for years. It was found in Captain Hansen's log book.
