FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Sara, daughter of Rear Admiral Vincent, who has a passion for collecting jade, has previously been in love with Captain Corey, but she insisted that he marry his fiancée, Alida, who remains intensely jealous of Sara. At a party Captain Willing jokingly boasts of the superiority of his jade collection and invites Sara to see it; they are locked in a room by his servant, and Sara, forced to exit by the bedroom window, is seen by Alida, whose gossip causes Sara to be ostracized. As a result, Vincent suffers a stroke and dies, and Sara swears vengeance on Alida. Fifteen years later, she is a hotel owner on a South Sea island where fate sends Captain Corey, Alida, and their young son, Allan. Sara plots with Beresford to compromise Alida, but Allan, in a drunken frenzy, kills Beresford. Sara takes the blame to save him, leaving the Coreys' happiness untouched.
