Among the coral outcrops of the island of Rota, lies the wreck of a Spanish galleon, the Santa Margarita.
Spring 1601. This is a reconstruction of the Santa Margarita's disastrous last voyage, beset by an extraordinary sequence of typhoons and storms. Based on what little is known of the ship's journey overloaded cargo, bad-blood amongst the crew and a curse, we are told a story of greed, horror, deprivation and unimaginable hardship by the handful of survivors rescued from the wreck . . .
