A simple errand, a nap, and Darl awakes a prisoner on a flying ship to be questioned by a sadistic pirate about his father - a father who is obviously not the man that raised him. Unable to provide answers he is thrown, shackled and confused, overboard for the amusement of the crew. Alone, chained, in a desert of stifling heat, he is left to die.
