Nine-year-old Bobby (Seth Adkins), who lives on a Nebraska farm with his mom and grandfather, has an overactive imagination and conjures up all sorts of playmates from cowboys to aliens that all seem so real to him. But then one day fantasy becomes reality when infamous pirate Jezebel Jack (Tim Curry) arrives through a time warp in search of treasure. Now it’s up to Bobby and Captain Jack to protect the family farm from an all-out battle when the captain’s disgruntled crew also finds their way to the fields of Nebraska.
Will they save the farm? Will they find a buried treasure hidden by Wild West outlaws? And will Bobby’s family believe him? Find out in this exciting family adventure also starring Dee Wallace-Stone (E.T.) and Charles Napier (Austin Powers).
Here is one for the imagination! Tim Curry is terrific as the scoundrel pirate Jezebel Jack, who arrives in the present via a time warp and meets young Bobby (Seth Adkins) who becomes a first mate of sorts. They go on a treasure hunt together and soon are pursued by a band of pirates attempting to catch up to Jack. With his father out of his life and his grandpa ill in the hospital, young Bobby manages to have a roaring adventure. How much of it is real and how much is fantasy is anyone’s guess.
