Among them is Mort, but rather than hunt for treasure, he's more interested in looking for his family who are lost at sea.

Unfortunately, his shipmate Punky has her eyes firmly on the prize. But when the pair find the tentacle of a mythical sea creature, their adventure takes a dramatic turn.

Is this the prize-winning treasure Punky and the queen seek? Or could it be a monstrous twist in Mort's rescue mission?
