In a little fishing village, an infant is discovered by Captain Dan Purcell (Rex de Roselli). He and his wife (Anna Hernandez) take the baby in and raise it as their own. The child, Kit, grows up to be a lively tomboy (Gladys Walton) who often gets involved in the affairs of her neighbors. One night, she goes on board one of the fishing boats to break up a poker game and makes one of the players go home to his wife. Captain Burt Kincaid (Jack Mower) detains her and tries to force himself on her. The spunky Kit puts a quick-enough end to that, and Kincaid comes to admire her instead. A locket reveals that Kit is actually part of a very wealthy family and she goes to live in luxury with her two newfound maiden aunts. She is not happy with her new life, however, and longs to go back to the humble fishing village and to Kincaid. She gets her chance when the rich woman who is supposedly her mother reveals that Kit was actually the maid's daughter. Kit is more than happy to return to the Purcells -- and, of course, to Kincaid.
