The storm now threatens the ship.
Mendoza asks everyone to attach themselves solidly.
Everyone is afraid when suddenly the ship is raised.
In its fall, the ship begins to be destroyed: mast is broken and the barrels of water open in the hold.
Mendoza wants to liberate Esteban and Zia,
completely frightened in their prison.
But Gaspard and Gomez want to take Zia also, because she is the key for the Cities of Gold. Gaspard wants to take his revenge about Mendoza
but he has to abandon this idea because the water climbs rapidly. In the meantime, crew left the ship with some lifeboats.
Mendoza manages to liberate Esteban and Zia
but the lifeboat is no longer there and some of the crew members drift on pieces of wood.
Then, the ship is cut off in two pieces and the stern rushes into the ocean.
Sancho and Pedro ask Esteban for the sun. He doesn't believe he can make that and climbs on the mast when suddenly the sun appears.
The stern continues to rush into. The next night, Esteban and Zia are situated on the deck. Zia speaks with Esteban about her father, a High Priest and about her original town, Shimon.
A light appears on the mast: A fire of St-Elme.
It's a bad sign for Mendoza. All of a sudden, an ocean current threatens to break the hull. They decide to build a raft.
The journey continues when sharks attack them and steal the last barrel of anchovies. Then, they go out.
Time goes by and with the sign of a seagull, they learn that land is not so far.
Mendoza wants to go to this land by swimming and he pulls the raft
but he is once again attack by a shark. The shark will finally goes out by the help of Mendoza
and they reach to the beach. Everyone is safe and eased.
