In this crime drama, a beach-bum who is into scuba diving falls for an enigmatic British woman. They have a wonderful affair, until he finds out that she is the mistress of an infamous drug dealer. The drug lord hires the scuba diver, but the man instead goes to the police. This causes the drug dealer to send two hitmen out to inject him with an overdose of heroin and leave him for the police to find. The cops do find him, but they do not believe the beach bum took the heroin of his own accord. Instead they use him to help them find the criminals. Meanwhile the diver still continues to see the moll on the side. Unfortunately they are caught and the woman is raped and tortured. The beach bum is then forced to do a dive for the drug lord. Before he does it, he manages to kill his two guards. The police move in and arrest the dealer.
