Summary In 1789, the HMS Bounty sets sail under Captain William Bligh. Bligh is the cruelest taskmaster and his cruelties become more than first mate Christian can bear. After the Captain causes the death of the ship's doctor, the crew stage a mutiny, with Christian in charge. Bligh is set adrift in an open boat with a handful of his loyal officers and limited supplies.
