    In 1789 HMS Bounty under the command of Lieutenant William Bligh sailed off on a voyage to Tahiti in the South Pacific to obtain breadfruit trees for transplanting in the Caribbean. After a long, difficult voyage, in which a passage of Cape Horn had to be abandoned, the ship finally reached its destination. Within a few months, the Bounty was loaded with breadfruit plants and fresh provisions. But the return voyage never materialized.

    Mytteri på Bounty er baseret på den historiske hændelse i 1789, hvor en del af besætningen på det engelske skib H.M.S. Bounty med understyrmand Christian Fletcher i spidsen begik mytteri mod deres kaptajn William Bligh. I romanen af Nordhoff & Hall følger vi den fiktive jeg-fortæller Roger Byam (baseret på Peter Heywood), der som ung kadet kommer med på Bountys sejlads mod Tahiti, hvor han skal samle informationer om de indfødtes sprog.

    Captain Bligh leaves London for Tahiti in charge of his crew on the Bounty. At sea he shows himself to be a brutal tyrant and cruel whilst enforcing discipline which includes flogging the men, cutting rations and over zealously working them too hard. On the return voyage, first mate Fletcher Christian, wonderfully played here by Orson Welles, leads the crew to mutiny and sets Bligh and his supporters adrift on a boat. What they did not count on is the Captain's return in this gripping tense drama.
