The sets were designed by James A. Carter, the regular Twickenham art director. Many scenes of the film were shot on location along the River Thames.


A retiring lockkeeper and his wife are concerned that their son Ted Salter, who is serving in the Royal Navy should settle down and start a family. They hope that this will be with his childhood sweetheart Betty the daughter of their old friend Captain Bill Buckett who operates a boat on the River Thames. However Ted has taken up with a flirtatious barmaid, at one point even risking arrest as a deserter because of her before reconciling with Betty. The film ends with Bill Buckett triumphing in an annual regatta.
