When a ship's purser returns home from a voyage, his wife has committed suicide and he discovers that she was pregnant, the result of an affair with her boss when she was his secretary. Intent on avenging the death of his wife, the sailor seeks employment with her old boss, who has no problem in hiring him. The boss is still a philanderer, and being of no great moral stripe, he even sets his own wife up with the sailor. What began as a vague plan of revenge backfires when the wife and purser fall in love -- leaving him in a dilemma that has no emotionally easy solution.
