In this strange South Seas tale, John Dellow (Harry A. Pollard) is washed up onto an island after a shipwreck, where he meets expatriate Spaniard Gomez (Joseph Harris) and his adopted daughter Yulita (Margarita Fisher). Yulita has grown up on the island and although she is unaware of most civilized ways, a romance springs up between her and Dellow. Captain Van Dekken (J. Gordon Russell), who is in charge of Gomez's schooner, wants the girl himself so he kidnaps her after tying up her lover and father and setting their hut on fire. But Yulita escapes, swims ashore and saves Gomez and Dellow. The three of them board the schooner, which is in the harbor, and make their escape from the island.
