As described in a film magazine, Axel Heyst (Holt), a strange and silent man, forms but one friendship being that of a sailing man without any apparent resources, who rewards this charitable assistance by giving Heyst a half interest in coal deposits on a South Seas island. Difficulties arise which cause Heyst to return to civilization where he meets and rescues from her annoyers Alma (Owen), an abused member of a hotel entertainment company. He takes the young woman back with him to the island, quartering her in an abandoned shack. It is not in Heyst's nature to love, so there is nothing of sentiment in their relationship. A trio of fortune hunters led by Mr. Jones (Deeley), hearing tales of Heyst's valuable possessions, come to the island and attempt to take his treasure and the young woman. It is then when Heyst discovers his love for Alma. Heyst triumphs over his persecutors and a happy ending results.
