In this musical melodrama, a young man's ascent from humble sailor to ship captain is chronicled. His career is going swimmingly until his ship is rammed and he, in order to save the lives of all aboard, is forced to jump ship. Later, the dishonored fellow is stripped of his command and forced to retire into the country with his family. Several years later, his good-hearted son reassembles his father's old crew, puts them aboard the old boat and gets his father to be the captain once more.
