TV series, 1984
Swashbuckling adventure series about Jasper le Feuvre and his thirst for revenge. Twelve years ago, a rich young man named Jasper le Feuvre was kidnapped and thrown in the hold of a pirate ship. On its way to France, the ship attacked a Dutch ship and shot it to pieces. In the ensuing fight Jasper landed in a lifeboat with the Dutch captain, three lowly sailors and a little girl who had lost her mother in the attack. The lifeboat drifted at sea for 19 days, and Jasper did all he can to save the mortally ill girl. Eventually they washed out on the African coast, where Jasper got captured by slave traders from North Africa.
Now, Jasper has finally found his way back to the Cape. He is determined to take revenge on whoever was responsible for his kidnapping and ensuing suffering. Meanwhile, the little girl from the lifeboat, Arline, has grown into a beautiful young woman who is deeply in love with the hero who saved her in childhood. Will Jasper find his way into her arms, or will his hatred and thirst for revenge ruin his life?
