Cargaison Blanche (White Cargo) bears no relation to the steamy tropical stage melodrama of the same name. The "cargo" referred to in the title consists of innocent young girls who are transported to parts unknown for immoral purposes. Female journalist Francoise Arnoul tries to catch the white-slaver villains in the act, only to be kidnapped herself. She is rescued by Georges Aminel, a black dope addict with whom she forms a strong (albeit platonic) bond. Once Aminel is able to convince the authorities of Arnoul's plight, the poor girl is returned to safety by nominal hero Georges Rivieres.
