As described in a film magazine,[3] during a cruise of the Elsinore, Captain Nathaniel Somers (MacGregor) is assassinated and John Pike (Lewis) takes control of the schooner to provide an income for the skipper's son Dick (Casson Ferguson). The latter dislikes the sea, but Pike insists that he make the voyage to keep his obligations to Margaret West (Helen Ferguson), daughter of a former half-owner of the ship. Members of the crew are cut-throats, and mutiny at the earliest opportunity, giving Pike the fight for his life.
