Tintin is a well known investigative journalist, despite his youth, and his best friend is Snowy, a fearless dog. One day Tintin buys a model of a replica pirate ship, the Unicorn, at an outdoor market. The Unicorn sank over 300 years ago. Tintin’s immediately approached by a sinister man, Ivanovich Sakharine, who wants to buy it off him. When Tintin refuses, Sakharine kidnaps Tintin (and stowaway Snowy) and imprisons him aboard a cargo ship.
Tintin discovers a scroll inside the model ship and realises this is one of several that will lead to sunken treasure from the Unicorn and this is what Sakharine is after. Tintin and Snowy manage to escape and take with them the drunken Captain Haddock who has been tied up by his crew. Haddock and Tintin now have to find the other scrolls before Sakharine does.
