In doing so, he unknowingly pockets an old map from the chest. But Jim is not the only one interested in the sea chest, and he has to flee when a group of cutthroats shows up to ransack the few possessions of the old sailor.The family doctor recognizes the map as the key to a fortune, which commences a Caribbean treasure hunt.
