In this drama, a beautiful woman boards a ship with a brutish fellow who kidnaps her and forces her to stow away. Later he proposes to her and tells her she will lead a luxurious life in a tropical chateau. She accepts and a "wedding" is performed on board. When they arrive to their equatorial home, she is shocked to find it nothing but a leaky, ramshackle shack. She then discovers that her "husband" is nothing but a pearl trader with a penchant for abusing the natives. He makes the girl his slave until a handsome young man arrives. Just before the cad leaves her, he jeeringly tells her that they were never really married. The woman blows a gasket and beats him with a leather thong and blinds him. She then tells all to her new lover. He accepts this and they leave the island on their way towards sunnier climes.
