Boston businessman Lewis Lowellen just wanted to buy something for his wife, Georgia, something to help send them off on a long-awaited retirement aboard their million dollar sailboat: Destination, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Needing a professional to help sail the yacht, Lewis hires a charter skipper and his girlfriend to share duties during the 1500-mile trip down the Atlantic. While waiting for Georgia to say her goodbyes, Lewis strolls into a pawn shop and pays $65 for a strange document simply because he thinks Georgia will like its "old world charm." What he doesn't know is that the document is an original Magna Carta-valued at $21 million-and then stolen from the U.S. National Archives by a sociopath and a silent-alarm wizard, neither of whom can figure out how the Boston man ended up with the manuscript. Life aboard the sailboat is fun for a while, but when the thieves look to their employer in Bermuda to help them find the boat, life becomes a rough and not-so-ready pursuit that ends on a dark night in a Caribbean airport.
