A child writes a series of one-way e-mails to his parents from the game room on a cruise ship. Pirates board and occupy the ship with the child obviously not understanding the concepts of death and the ramification of other abuse from the pirates. He seems to believe that at the end of "Pirate Week" things will revert to normal.
