Two rich sisters become arch rivals when they fall in love with their swimming teacher in this silent adventure. The sneakier sister gets her sibling out of the way by sending her on a slow boat to China. Unfortunately, the handsome instructor was just hired to teach swimming on the same cruise. Desperately the conniving sister sneaks aboard. As soon as they arrive in China, she stuffs her good sister into a hotel closet, locks the door and leaves her there. She then does her best to make love to the instructor. Unfortunately, a Chinese revolution sudden erupts and the instructor, ignoring the bad sister, races back and gets there just in time to save the endangered girl. Marital bliss soon follows.
