Captain Blood is a modern adaptation of Rafael Sabatini's 1922 swashbuckling classic about pirates, romance, and a man fighting against injustice. Dr. Peter Blood is convicted of treason for tending to the wounds of a rebel during a rebellion against King James II. Sentenced to a life of slavery in Barbados, Blood falls in love with the brutal plantation owner's niece, Arabella. Like Blood, Arabella suffers under her uncle's wrath, and the pair plan to escape the island and start a new life together. However, when a band of pirates suddenly attacks Barbados, Blood is faced with an impossible choice: escape to freedom and risk losing Arabella, or stay with Arabella but remain a slave. Reluctantly, Blood chooses to escape and becomes one of the most feared pirates in the Caribbean, not knowing that fate will take him back to the plantation and the woman he left behind. Captain Blood is a story of love, regret and, ultimately, redemption.
