In this musical drama, a child is abandoned upon the San Francisco docks. He is found and raised by a fisherman. His life is happy until the fisherman's sister-in-law moves in after her husband dies. She brings her bratty son with her. This upsets the orphan so much that he runs away. The fisherman launches a huge city-wide search, finds the sad lad, and finally brings him back home. Songs include: "Fisherman's Chantey," "Sell Your Cares for a Song," and "Blue Italian Waters."
