Although Priscilla Dean is starred in this dramatic Universal character study, it's Tom Santschi who has the meatier role. Brute Morgan (Santschi) is the skipper of a large sailing vessel which runs down a little fishing boat belonging to Kate Masterson (Dean). Morgan rescues her, then forces her to do menial work around the ship. Being a misogynist, he abuses her badly as he does his crew. Kate eventually discovers that he hates women because one girl broke his heart. Her sympathetic nature begins to have a good influence on him. Rennert, the ship's first mate (William B. Davidson), plots a mutiny and takes over the ship. Kate saves Morgan from being thrown overboard. When a storm blows up, Rennert's inexperience causes him to lose control and the ship sinks. Morgan and Kate are the only survivors, and they discover they have fallen in love.
