Description:Loosely based on one of Herman Melville's stories, this tale is set on the isle of Taviti where a cursed captain returns to retrieve giant black pearls he stole from the eyes of a sacred shark god statue and buried nearby. The even greedier first mate kills the captain for the pearls while a good sailor and the captain's daughter struggle to return them to the Islanders. When the captain is murdered, the curse is passed on to the daughter because she is the only one who knows where the pearls are buried. Monkeys, snakes, and tigers roam the shores and jungles of the island in this film.
