Synopsis: The internationally renowned boy investigative reporter and adventurer, Tintin buys a beautiful model ship at a local market. Not moments afterwards, a suspicious character, Mr. Sakharine, expresses an urgent desire to buy it from him. Failing to do so, Sakharine decides to kidnap Tintin and Snowy (Tintin’s wire fox terrier and faithful companion). They are whisked on board a cargo ship and set sail to Morocco. The crew has mutinied against the ship’s captain, Haddock, an alcoholic. Tintin, Snowy and Haddock escape and upon arriving in Morocco they learn that another model of the Unicorn is in the possession of a sheikh. Tintin learns from Captain Haddock that one of his ancestors, Sir Francis Haddock, was forced to scuttle his ship, the Unicorn, when attacked by pirates. He has, however, secreted his treasure and details its location on three secret scrolls hidden in separate models of The Unicorn. Two Clouseau-esque Interpol agents, Thomson, and Thompson join the fray to help our hero keep the evil Mr. Sakharine at bay and learn the … secret of the Unicorn!
