In their new adventure, Huck and Tom have found treasure and are now very wealthy.Huck has to dress up in fine clothes and is preened by Jim the slave with whom he gets on well. He tries to bring some variety to his very refined new life and would love to give away his money to regain his old freedom. The boredom ends abruptly when his father turns up. But the tramp and drinker is only after Huck's money and prepared to use any means necessary to get his hands on it. When Jim is almost sold to slave-traders, the two boys flee down the Mississippi on a home-made raft. They want a new life, free from slavery and unpleasant duties. But first they have to shake off all the pursuers after the reward on their heads. After the box office hit Tom Sawyer comes the exciting adaptation of Mark Twain's classic novel. We meet old friends again on the way to new adventures.
