Captain Bligh leaves London for Tahiti in charge of his crew on the Bounty. At sea he shows himself to be a brutal and cruel tyrant whilst enforcing discipline—including flogging the men, cutting rations, and over-zealously working them too hard. On the return voyage, first mate Fletcher Christian leads the crew to mutiny and sets Bligh and his supporters adrift on a boat. The former captain’s sudden return comes as a shocking surprise in this gripping and tense drama.
