Sam is a young boy whose misunderstanding of the phrase 'the Wreck of the Hesperus' leads him to have an unexpected night time adventure with 'The Reckolahesperus' a magical creature. The phrase is in reference to a poem about a shipwreck written in 1842 by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
