Orphaned, Buddy Stebbins and his sister Liz have only each other until the night Liz doesn't return home. Buddy hears a strange message on the answering machine urging Liz to come to the 13th floor of an old downtown building. Trying to locate the place, he finds himself delivered to a 17th century pirate ship. Filled with appealing pirates, unappealing preachers, buried treasure, this is a time-warp adventure that leaves open the question of who exactly are the ghosts in the story.
