Ten-year-old Lisa lives with her parents in a busy city. She has an orderly life: she goes to school, likes to read pirate stories, and sleeps. She would like to do adventurous things, but her parents have no time for that. Her mother always watches television, and her father works on his laptop day and night.
One day, there is a carnival in the city. There are food stalls everywhere, dancing people on the street, and musicians who play upbeat music. Amid the hustle and bustle, Lisa meets the dog, Goldie, who leads her to a pirate ship. Will her longing for adventure finally come true?
