Manuela Alva lives in the small Caribbean village of Calvados and dreams of being swept away by the legendary Pirate, Mack "the Black" Macoco. However, her aunt and uncle insist that she marry the town mayor; the rotund and bullying Don Pedro. Shortly before her wedding, Manuela visits a nearby town that is hosting a circus troupe led by the handsome Serafin - a roguish traveller who falls in love with Manuela and plots to pass himself off as Macoco in order to win her heart.
