This epic blockbuster presents an underdog story of the Napoleonic Wars. Captain Lucky Jack Aubrey, commander of the British frigate the HMS Surprise, receives orders to chase the French warship Archeron. Separated by the Atlantic Ocean and outsized and outgunned, Aubrey turns to his trusted friend, surgeon Stephen Maturin, for advice to complete the impossible mission.
