True Fact: in 1817, fabled pirate Jean Lafitte and legendary cowboy Jim Bowie teamed up to take over a town: Galveston, Texas, heart of the American Frontier. For the next four years, PIRATES RULED!

A swashbuckling western based on real events. New Orleans. 1817. Smuggler Jean LaFitte flees town, evading the law. He lands in Galveston, Texas, where he quickly finds himself the ruler of a pirate safe haven. Jim Bowie, fated to be one of the legendary defenders of the Alamo, became a close friend. This is could—or could not-be the story of their friendship, the women they fell for, the men they killed, and the adventures they had...together. One of the world's most infamous pirates—and one of the world's most famous cowboys!
