In nineteenth century Japan, Allan Carroll, an American sailor, is shipwrecked and taken in by the kindly Yori. Prince Iku, who has all foreigners trespassing on Japanese soil killed, sends his sister Omi San to investigate, and she falls in love with Allan. Iku seizes Allan and Yori, but Allan manages to kill Iku and escape to America. Fifty years later, Iku III is sent to America and works in a home where Allan Carroll III is a guest. To avenge his grandfather's death, Iku kidnaps Allan's fiancée Virginia and flees to Japan. With the help of a gang of American sailors, Allan kills Iku and recovers Virginia, but the aged Omi San is also killed in the battle.
