While they are looking for him, Keyla and her uncle Richard receive an unexpected visit from Spain: Helena, Breggie’s ex-wife, comes with her son Francisco, Keyla’s half-brother, whom she has never met.
Keyla initially is very upset with the visit; having resentment towards Helena for leaving her when she was pregnant with Francisco and Keyla was a child. But gradually she approaches the boy and shares with him the most precious memory of her father; a Morgan the Pirate’s map, which points to a hidden treasure. Francisco asks his sister to undertake this hunt; he feels that his father was close to finding something. They go together by boat, cross the island, its secret places. On this adventure they get to know each other, and accept one another as siblings.
