Under sealed orders for a long, arduous voyage, Captain Daniel Swift dispenses shipboard law with an iron fist to forge an efficient crew from a ragged group of unwilling, inexperienced "volunteers" - the old men, criminals, and young boys under his command. Center stage is Swift's conflicted young nephew, Midshipman William Bentley. Trapped between his cruel uncle's demands to impress and subdue a crew he can - literally - whip into shape, and a simmering mutiny.
