With the quest of succeeding his great-grandfather, Grandpa Rosendale as a Seafarer (Sailor); the distortion of his dream begins when a ghost ship visits the peaceful bay called The Nook – where he lives with his parents, bringing a curse to the shores of the peaceful town.

And indeed, the reality of the saying that ‘the shadow of the past (good or bad) of our elders, will hunt its generation’ steps in as Scarlet Rosendale is imprisoned as a slave to be tortured and killed in order to break the curse of Bodiaka by the Captain of the Renegade, Captain Ambloca.
Narrowly escaping his home at the Nook; the Renegade -the ship that had formerly belonged to his great-grandfather and is rightfully his to claim one day, but that day will come only after winning the life-and-death war between him, now Captain Scarlet and Captain Ambloca.
With Scarlet Minor’s destruction the goal of his opponent, could the mirror image of himself (Scarlet) be a demon sent by Captain Ambloca who confronted Scarlet with supernatural threats?
After breaking the bondage of the curse of the past, will Captain Ambloca give up his pursuit to destroy Scarlet?
