Mexican actress Movita, who rose to fame as one of the native girls in the Oscar-winning Mutiny on the Bounty, heads the cast of Monogram's Paradise Isle. On a remote South Sea Island, sun-kissed maiden Ila (Movita) finds white man Richard Kennedy (Warren Hull) washed up on shore. Once a celebrated painter, Kennedy has been stricken blind, and was on his way to a European eye specialist when his ship was destroyed in an explosion. Confused, disillusioned and embittered, Kennedy is nursed back to health by Ila, who tries her best to restore his will to live. Complicating her efforts are her jealous native boyfriend Tono (George Pilita) and scurrilous pearl trader Hoener (William B. Davidson).
