When William escapes from bully Danny by hiding on the wreck of an old ship, he cannot imagine the adventures or the dangers that lie ahead. He becomes attached to the SS Shannon, despite the tales that claim that the ship is haunted. But Danny's father has plans to redevelop the docks, and these have no place for the old ship. It soon becomes clear that Danny's bullying ways have been learnt from his family. In order to save the SS Shannon, William will have to find the courage to stand up to both his tormentor and his father. But should he be more worried about the eerie sheen that surrounds the ship?
