On his 21st birthday the young pirate apprentice Frederic has completed his duty of servitude to his fellow Pirates. He must leave the pirates who have raised him and venture out to the world and become his own person, experience new things and meet new people. The young , beautiful Mabel instantly catches his eye. As always, obstacles threaten to cause trouble for young Frederic. It turns out that Frederic was born during the leap year which means even though he is 21 he has only had 5 birthdays and he must remain a pirate’s apprentice until his 21st birthday. Along the way a bunch of crazy characters like the Major General Stanely and the Sargeant of police weave their way in to the story causing all kinds of hysterical chaos that will leave your students laughing in the aisles. Of course, a happy ending is in the cards for our young hero!
