• BENJAMIN ARLOTT (BENGIE)
Bengie is an orphaned little boy who is at the age of eleven. His mother
died of disease and his
father is a drunk who beat and abandoned him outside of an orphanage when
he was only six years
old. He took up pickpocketing and mastered it at the age of ten.
Robert hears of the legend of 'Dead Man's Crossing' and the rumor that
hidden treasures may
lie, on the island, across the water of 'Dead Man's Crossing'. He meets
highwayman Erwin, and
Fiance Abigail... and they form an alliance. Erwin is desperate to find
the treasure, so he can
afford to save the life of his ailing mother.
The gang encounter demons, pirates, captains, sharks, and even a witch
along the way. Their
friendship with the sorceress gives them the key information they need,
to conquer the curse of
the Galleon, and reach the island. Erwin has to take a drastic step to release the treasure finally.
The curse is lifted. The gang return to shore, rich beyond their wildest
dreams. Erwin and Abigail
are married. But their joy is short-lived when they are captured and
hung for their crimes.
This is a charming tale, bursting with imagination and story. Significant
development is needed,
in several areas, to take the script to the next level.
