Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Chattfield Bruce (J. Warren Kerrigan) is in China working for an American importer. There is a famine there and a pirate loots a merchant's junk and distributes the rice to the poor. Bruce admires the pirate's deed and does him a favor, which rouses the enmity of trader Caglioni (Harry Carter). Back in the U.S., Bruce -- made a member of the pirate's Nine Times Nine gang -- gives charity to the needy, and when he runs short on funds, decides to play Robin Hood in his own backyard. He steals a pearl necklace from his employer's daughter Marjorie (Louise Lovely), with the intention of using the ill-got funds for philanthropic acts, but is almost caught by Caglioni, who is now in the States himself. After just barely escaping the law, Bruce reforms at the insistence of the girl.
