This is what One Piece is about:

This is the great age of pirates. With the death of the former pirate king Gold Roger, the search for the coveted One Piece , the greatest treasure in the world, began. Roger had hidden this shortly before his execution. Since then, the Grandline has been populated by nasty and lousy characters who lust for gold, wealth and power. Only one is different somehow. Once he ate the gum-gum fruit, now he makes every enemy tremble with his rubbery powers and murderous appetite – here comes Luffy, the future king of the pirates!
