Leon’s dad is captain of a struggling pirate ship. He can’t find any large sail boats with treasure to loot, only fishing boats, and his crew of three is not the brightest. Secretely, young Leon trains to become a pirate so when the time comes, he can make his dad proud. He learns to paint the white skull on a black flag, count coins, cook meals… Finally, his time comes! Nöstingler’s humorous tale masterfully touches on issues of self-esteem, freedom and courage, and that special relationship between father and son.
