John Hammis, a wealthy financier, disapproves of James Radley, his daughter Dorothy's choice for a fiance, and hires Robert MacWorth, an ex-aviator, to try to find something in Radley's past or present conduct that will discredit him in her eyes. MacWorth suspects Radley of larcenous intentions and places some valuable peearls within his easy reach, believing that he can catch Radley in the act of stealing them. This plan fails, and MacWorth arranges for Dorothy, Radley, and himself to be stranded together on a desert isle. There, contrary to all expectations, Radley proves himself to be the better man, overcoming both the forces of nature and MacWorth. Dorothy and Radley are then wed.
