This drama was based on the novel Cape Cod Folks by Sarah P. McLean Greene. Jonathan Swift (Frank Keenan) is a wealthy fish packer who resides in a New England fishing village with his son, Noah (Eddie Phillips), and daughter, Emily (Barbara Bedford). Noah is in love with Becky (Renee Adoree), the daughter of Captain Bijonah Keeler (Joseph J. Dowling), a lighthouse keeper. Swift does not approve of the match because he feels that the Keelers are below his station. Meanwhile, Emily is being courted by Joe Cradlebow (Robert Frazer), a captain whose attention she spurns. In order to break up the romance between Noah and Emily, Swift has his son shanghaied and taken aboard a ship. Soon a storm blows in and the ship is wrecked. Cradlebow rescues Noah, winning Emily's admiration. When Swift discovers that Becky is pregnant, and that Noah has promised to marry her, he relents and gives the union his approval, while Cradlebow weds Emily.
