The Jolly Sailor is a pirate comedy drama for teenagers. It is based around a group of friends known as the Posse, among them is William who is not the adventurous type, and that is just how his father, a customs officer, had arranged it – if he had known that his mother was Gracie O'Donnell – the Pirate Queen – his life might have been so very different.
On a trip to France to pick up documents William is kidnapped by the Cornish Captain Rumtug and his daughter Martha May, and traded as a commodity with a price on his head.
He becomes reunited with a family he never knew he had and everything changes for William – he will never be the same again.
After a rough and tumble of events we arrive at the big finale.
