With Bart's beloved fiddle and haunting blunderbuss as her only possessions, Fin discovers her first taste of freedom as a sailor aboard the Rattlesnake. She's hiding some dark secrets, but there are bigger problems for the crew - they are on the run from the Royal Navy, and whisphers of mutiny are turning the captain into a tyrant.
