Ben is a galley boy on [a ship called] the Flying Dutchman. Ned, the black labrador, is his best friend. Ben and Ned can magically communicate with one another. After the ship was cursed to sail forever, Ben and ned are swept overboard and meet a kindly old shephard. When they were swept overboard an angel told them they would roam the earth doing good and helping others. One night the shephard dies, and Ben and Ned move on. But that was 200 years ago. Now the pair are in a little town called Chapelvale where they have to find the town's deed before the town is destroyed. This is a race against time to save the town with the help of Jon, Amy, Alex, and Mrs. Wihn.
