This high-seas melodrama tells the tale of a self-righteous sea captain who steals his son and leaves his wife because he believes that she is having an affair. Two decades later, a woman is discovered aboard the ship. It is the captain's ex-wife who simply wants to be near her boy who shares his father's contempt of her. Also aboard the ship is a young woman, the daughter of another woman who cheated on the captain. Things are tumultuous for a while, but eventually the emotionally stormy seas calm and the captain forgives his ex-wife and allows the son and his new lady love to wed. During a real storm, the captain sacrifices his life to save the endangered couple.
