Walt Disney's adaptation of the Jules Verne novel, "Captain Grant's Children".
A French scientist finds the proverbial note-in-a-bottle, which divulges the location of a long-missing Captain. The scientist and the captain's children set out on a wild sea journey to South America to search for him, and on their way they encounter every possible obstacle to their quest: floods, fierce storm, wild animals, mutiny, and capture by some unfriendly natives.
