Life is wonderful on a pretty island in the Antilles ruled by a wise and powerful king--until the seven-headed Bird of Darkness comes from behind the horizon to turn noon into midnight with its terrible black wings! The Bird of Darkness only leaves the kingdom in peace when the beautiful Princess Marie lets it take her away as its prisoner. Grief stricken, the king promises half his kingdom, half his fortune, and Marie's hand in marriage to any man who can sail beyond the horizon, kill the Bird of Darkness, and return home with his daughter. Brave, clever Soliday decides to rescue the princess; but Salacota, his mean-spirited, cowardly twin brother, has some greedy plans of his own..
