As described in a film magazine,[2] Ginger (Talmadge), a young Jamaican woman, secures a position as a housekeeper for Englishman Clifford Standish (Ford), a wealthy plantation owner, when Captain Bill Hennessey (Barnes), with whom she had lived for several years, sails away for England. Clifford struggles as he is addicted to drink. Ginger saves Clifford from being robbed by some locals, and then by reforming him she induces him to give up drink and take an interest in running the plantation. Clifford falls in love with her and, on the day they are married, his brother John (Cliffe) arrives from England. He brings news that Clifford has inherited a vast estate. They return to England where his mother (Waterman) and former sweetheart meet Ginger with carefully rehearsed hauteur. During a card game Ginger discovers one player is cheating with marked cards and the Englishman is exposed. Cliff and his bride Ginger return to the West Indies to get away from the pretense and hypocrisy of the society she had been thrust into.



The film's working title was Regeneration Isle.[1]
