In this adventure, set in the South Seas near Fiji, a boozy veteran from the Korean War gets involved with a native girl trying to escape a cruel nightclub owner. She claims that because she refused the marriage arrangements made by the island's high priest that she is tabu, off limits to all men. The man, not being a native, disregards the native customs and the two lead a long and happy life together.
