This melodrama from Fox stars William Russell. Jack Arnold (Russell), the secretary of a mining syndicate, is sent to the South Sea Island of Pago Tai to land an option on a black opal mine. He just manages to make the same steamer that is carrying the members of a rival company to the same destination. Clive Langdon (Frank Beal), representing the other company, is accompanied by his niece Caroline Peyton (Dorothy Devore) and her fiancé, Neal Travis (Lloyd Whitlock). Caroline pays Jack's fare and he begins to fall in love with her. Both Langdon and Travis use the pair's growing affection to trap Arnold. But they're still not able to prevent him from getting to the mine. He makes friends with its owner and is able to get the option. Caroline, meanwhile, has come to realize that she doesn't care for Travis at all, so she throws him over for Arnold.
