Jacinta guides us through the story of siblings Dylan, Andrea and Lucas who arrive in a fishing community on Mexico’s Pacific coast to set off with their new local friends on a journey of discovery in search of long lost pirate loot left back by Francis Drake, centuries ago. In sunny and lively images, a story of children confidently indulging their lust for life and curiosity. Armed with their intelligence, a Tablet, and some maps, these children are given freedom to go their own ways and together find something much more valuable than a buried treasure. Transporting us to a place of optimism, beauty and wonder.
