Arabella - Pirate's Daughter (Original title: Arabella, mereröövli tütar; Russian: Арабелла - дочь пирата, Arabella - doch pirata) is a 1983 (filmed 1982) Soviet Estonian adventure movie, based on the same name tale by Aino Pervik. Arabella, the daughter of the captain of the pirate ship "Scorpio", encourages her father in everything, who willingly shares the loot with the poor people. The girl annoys the whole team, and her father becomes their main enemy. Once the pirates take on Scorpio's board a strange man named Aadu - and the girl has another friend. The three of them - Arabella, captain and Aadu - will soon have to leave the ship and experience many amazing adventures.
