    • Synopsis
    • Beach officer Marco Macaco dreams of solving a big crime, but unfortunatley there is not much going on on his tropical island. So he spends most of his time trying to woo the beautiful Lulu. He is just about to succeed when newcomer Carlo builds a gigantic monkey-shaped casino right on Marco's beach. Lulu is fascinated by Carlo’s charms and intrigued by his offer to make her a star in her own show at the casino.
      Jealously Marco starts an undercover investigation of Carlo's strange casino and soon discovers the truth. Carlo wants to take over the island and instate himself as president! When Marco tries to confront Carlo everything goes wrong: he ruins Lulu’s first show and causes the President to fall from his high chair. Lulu is upset, the President furious and everybody blames him for acting up out of jealousy. With the presidental guards on his heels, Marco has to escape from the island and ends up on a log in the ocean.
      Just when Marco thinks that things cannot get any worse he is captured by pirates. However, to his surprise the pirates are not as bad as they seem: All heart-broken men, they have chosen the wild life at sea to forget about love and now want to help him forget Lulu and make him one of them.
      In the meantime, back on the island a problem rises, literally from the ground. Because Carlo's Casino is indeed a giant robot! All of a sudden, Marco Macaco is Lulu’s only hope.
      Just when he is about to forget her, she manages to alert him with a message. And finally, Marco rises to the occasion to prove his true colours: Fearless and determined, he sets out on an action- packed rescue mission including cannonballs, robots and a sea monster to save Lulu and the Island...
