Joel, youngest son of a seafaring family, loves Priscilla, betrothed against her wishes to Mark, his eldest brother. Mark, a ship's captain, sails to Singapore, accompanied by Joel and his brothers. Mark drinks heavily during the voyage, and he is drunk when a conspiratorial crew led by Finch sails from Singapore without him. Joel is put in irons. Reaching home, Joel is freed; he finds Priscilla, and, taking her with him, he returns to Singapore for Mark. There Mark sees that Priscilla does not love him, and he steps aside for his brother.
