Escaping religious persecution, 17th-century Huguenots find refuge on the Isle of Devon. But when wrongfully exiled Kerwin Mathews (fresh from playing Sinbad and Gulliver) runs afoul of pirate captain Christopher Lee and his violent crew (including Oliver Reed, Peter Arne, and Michael Ripper) the community finds itself in the crosshairs for its coveted golden idol. With Desmond Llewelyn (“Q” in the 007 movies) and Dennis Waterman as father-and-son farmers.
