Clever Dad builds a pirate ship, so that his son Tristan can sail the seven seas on the promise that he will be a good pirate. Tristan is captivated once the ship is complete and his father starts to tell him a story but he, using his imagination drifts off in his own tale of the high seas.
Once sailing along he meets different characters, the first of which is the Easterly wind that suggests he goes to Polysneezia, a pleasant island that the wind will help him reach.
He lets the wind take him in the direction of the island and he relaxes until he meets a group of flying fish who tell him not to go there because of pirates digging for treasure. He is told that they are digging so many holes that the island might sink. Horrified, he asks the advice of the Easterly wind and decides that he must try to help even though he has been warned by the flying fishes.
Tristan encounters other characters on his way to Polysneezia that give him their opinion on whether to continue or not. Knowing that the island is in trouble he presses on determined to help. Will Tristan be able to save the island from the dastardly pirates.
