In this high-seas adventure, a woman creates a great rift between old friends: an experienced older diver, and his younger protege. They become enemies when a gold-digger marries the latter. She soon leaves him in favor of a wealthy yachtsman. She is aboard his boat when an accident occurs. The two divers must salvage the costly boat before it sinks. Trouble ensues when the older diver gets his foot trapped between iron beams on the foundering ship. Meanwhile, on the surface, a large storm is brewing. The salvage crew wants to leave the stricken diver and get safely back to port, but the younger diver, remembering their friendship, risks it all to save him. Just as he frees his friend with an underwater torch, the corpse of the troublemaking woman floats by.
