This epic adventure movie is telling the story of the H.M.S. Surprise, a British frigate, under the command of Captain Jack Aubrey. In April 1805, his and the Surprise's orders are to track and capture or destroy a French privateer named Acheron. The Acheron is currently in the Atlantic off South America heading toward the Pacific in order to extend Napoleon's reach of the wars. This task will be a difficult one as Aubrey quickly learns in an initial battle with the Acheron that she is a bigger and faster ship than the Surprise. Aubrey's single-mindedness in this seemingly impossible pursuit puts him at odds with the Surprise's doctor and naturalist, Stephen Maturin, who is also Aubrey's most trusted advisor on board and closest friend.
