Synopsis by Janiss Garza
House Peters stars in this Universal "jewel." Fisher captain John Strong (Peters) lives on the coast of Nova Scotia with his mother (Gertrude Claire), her ward, Judith Nyte (Nina Romano), and his younger brother Neil (Ray Hallor). Strong firmly believes he is the master of his destiny, and when he meets Lysette DeJon (Ruth Clifford), he is determined to make her his. He brings her home, but soon her affection for him turns cold. Judith confesses to Strong that Lysette, a lyrical type of girl, has fallen in love with the more poetic Neil, whose temperament is far closer to her own. Strong's self-confidence is shattered, but his spirit returns when Neil is lost in a gale, and he must heroically set out in a lifeboat and rescue him. After giving his blessings to Neil and Lysette, he leaves home, but promises Judith that he will return for her.
