Sailing the sea on a ship are captain Adrijan, his fearless bitch Rumi and a spoilt cat Aba. Once, after being tossed about in a storm, they finally see land on the horizon and think the worst is behind them. But they soon learn that there are castaways on the island: two child refugees, a boy and a girl, and their tomcat. Captain Adrijan is adamant to take them home but first, pirates stand in their way, and then a scrupulous policeman, too.

In the end, everything turns out well as love, kindness and courage win.

Musical score for this radio play was composed by Jerko Novak.
