This Columbia "special" begins as a little girl is rescued from a sinking ocean liner by a pair of seafaring brothers. The girl grows up to become the beautiful Elaine Hammerstein, while her two saviors battle over her affections. She falls in love with the "good" brother (Robert Ellis) while the "bad" one (Pat Harmon) discovers that the heroine is actually a long-lost heiress, worth millions and zillions of dollars. Upon learning further that a crafty lawyer will benefit immeasurably if the heiress doesn't show up to collect her legacy, the bad brother conspires with the lawyer to arrange for the girl's "accidental" demise. All of this leads to a spectacular shipwreck and a last-minute dying confession from the evil sibling.
