In this adventure set upon a Polynesian island, a brave pearl-hunter saves a hapless native girl from being raped by one of his three treacherous partners who have hidden a great cache of stolen pearls somewhere on the island. The girl knows where it is because her brother found it and offered it to one of the island gods; she offers to take her savior to the pearls. Meanwhile, the would-be-rapist murders the native chief and tries to frame the young couple. He then steals the pearls. Just before the accused couple is to die, the island police commissioner saves them. The three take off after the crooks who have stopped upon the docks to argue. A battle ensues and in the end, the crooks are trying to sail away when their vessel is set ablaze. The villains die aboard the boat while the commissioner impounds the pearls. The hero decides to remain on the island with the girl he's come to love.
