Storyline: Born in a Milanese noble family, Ippolito masters every challenge with a combination of shrewdness and intelligence while his brother Ferrante is a brilliant swordsman. Both fall in love with Livia Cornero, the family enemy's daughter, and when Livia is shot by Ippolito's gun in a tragic brush with Cornero's men, they both realize that they were in love with the same woman. Ferrante runs away while Ippolito gets arrested. Years pass, and the two lads grow up into self-confident men. Ferrante, unable to get over Livia's death nor to forgive Ippolito, has an endless series of adventures and becomes a feared pirate, sailing the seven seas together with the notorious buccaneer Devil's Tail, while Ippolito risks his life every day as a spy in the service of the French. One day, fate confronts the two brothers: Ippolito has been ordered to track down the most intelligent and feared pirates and bring them to justice, and is quite unaware that one of them is his own brother...
