E. Mason Hopper
George Wilton, who represents a large New York fish packing concern, travels to the Newfoundland fishing village of Hearts Desire to purchase a packing plant, but he soon learns that the plant's owner, Jean Laroque, has no intention of selling. Undaunted, Wilton promises Jean's restless young fiancée, Judith Bretans, that he will finance her move to New York City provided she give him the deed to the plant. On the night of the wedding, Judith secures the papers from her new husband, and when Jean realizes that he has lost the plant to Wilton, he denounces Judith and leaves town. As the new owner, Wilton operates the plant with such cruelty that the outraged fishermen decide to revolt and are about to attack the building when Jean appears. Although he succeeds in dispersing the mob, Wilton is killed, and Judith, who has realized her foolishness, is reunited with her husband.
