Born with only one ear he's happy to escape his cruel father when the chance to apprentice to a local fisherman presents itself, Luc finally feels like his luck has changed. Living with the fisherman's family Luc comes to love the man's sister Mattie and the beautiful Beatrice, a noble girl brought down in the world. Unfortunately his happy time is cut short when raiders kidnap him and sell him to an Arabic nobleman in Tunisia.
