Synopsis:

Treasure Island - is it the mythical isle where untold wealth awaits marauding pirates, or the freezing cold, artificial island in the middle of San Francisco Bay awaiting cut-throat developers? Or is it both?

That’s the question for Jill Hawkins, an under-secretary to an assistant director in the City’s planning department when an old sea-dog of a developer drops anchor in her office, and drops a mystery in her lap. “Developers...they scour the map looking for cities with fat purses, ready to be plundered!”

Developers as pirates? That’s what crazy old Benny Gunn says, too. “They’ll swoop in like a hurricane, take it all, and leave ya to sink!” But what about the people - like the folks living out on the island? Or in Bayview? Or in any town or neighborhood so desperate for housing the politicians will sign any deal with any Corsair who come calling with a promise to build affordable housing? With rising tides and lowered expectations is an Island in the middle of the Bay the last hope for those pushed to the edge? Why has it been undeveloped for so long? And who is the one-legged developer the old pirate warned Hawkins about with her dying breath?
