In this drama, a sailor is blackmailed into stealing a valuable panel of stained glass. The trouble begins when the sailor gets into a fight with another and jumps ship in Sydney, Australia. Upon the docks he is knocked out. When he wakes up, he finds himself in a woman's apartment. She is the secretary of a shipping company, and she informs him that the other sailor died during the fight and that he is wanted by the police. A detective calls and confirms this. The shady secretary then offers to make him a deal: if he helps her steal a silver chalice from a museum, she will hide him from the cops. He agrees, but later he learns that what she really wants is a stained glass window from the museum. When she takes off to meet with a corrupt art dealer, the sailor pursues them, enlisting the aid of an attractive insurance investigator. Together, they bring back the priceless window, and the secretary meets her demise when she is smothered in a shower of wheat in a granary.
