Patsy Ruth Miller plays a female Tarzan in this adventure drama. When John Livingstone marries a circus performer, his father (Joseph J. Dowling) is furious. Nevertheless, he offers to raise the couple's daughter, Lorraine (Doreen Turner). The boat taking the circus to the States wrecks and everyone is reported lost. Lorraine lands on an island, along with her companion, a gorilla named Bimi (Fred Humes), an elephant, and a cage of lions. Lorraine lives amongst these creatures for a decade while her grandfather, who is convinced she is alive, goes in search for her. He finally locates her with the help of Don Mackay (Norman Kerry), a student of the occult. Lorraine and Bimi are brought back to civilization and the girl, now a young lady (as portrayed by Miller), must acclimate herself to a new way of living. When Bimi misbehaves, he is put in a cage. A storm blows and without Lorraine around, Bimi panics and breaks out. He finds the girl and runs off with her. Mackay gives pursuit and rescues Lorraine. Bimi's fate is not so bright -- he is shot and killed. Lorraine is disconsolate at the loss of her friend, but finds happiness in the arms of Mackay.
