John Francis Dillon
In a Havana saloon, Dingo Mike, a bootlegger, is attracted to Dot Hunter, a barmaid. After Dot warns Dingo that he is being set up to be robbed, he returns to the saloon armed, starts a fight to destroy the saloon, and takes Dot with him to Miami. Once in Miami, Dot meets Dingo's landlady, Nellie, and his neighbors, "Doc" Heath and Gwen and Jerry Willis, a quarrelsome married couple. Dingo must attend to his business and leaves Dot for two weeks. Doc becomes disturbed when he learns that his friend, Malcolm Todd, a traveling evangelist, and Malcolm's nephew and disciple Ernest are coming to visit. Ernest is immediately attracted to Dot, whom Doc introduces as the local surveyor's wife. Doc suspects that Ernest's rigid lifestyle is unhealthy, and while Ernest insists to Doc that he is fine, he admits his unhappiness to Malcolm. Malcolm has made Ernest promise never to marry for fear that marriage would interfere with his lifestyle. Over the next few days, Ernest and Dot become friends. Then, when Ernest stops Jerry from attempting to molest Dot, he learns that she is Dingo's moll. After thanking Ernest for helping her, Dot leaves to go swimming. Doc, trying to bring the two together, tells Ernest that the currents to the island are very dangerous, and Ernest follows after her. On the island, Ernest and Dot lie in the sand and discuss the types of gods they believe in. After Ernest asks Dot to marry him, a storm forces them to seek shelter in the island's cabin. The next day, as Dingo's ship docks, Malcolm and Doc row out to the island, where Dot tells Doc that she will marry Ernest to save him from Dingo's wrath. Malcolm tries to dissuade Ernest from marrying her, but Ernest is adamant. Back on shore, Dot tells Dingo her plans, and he agrees not to have Ernest beaten. As Ernest and Dot leave town, however, they pass a church and hear Malcolm preaching the lesson of the the prodigal son. Moved by the sermon, Dot sends Ernest back to his own people. At the same time, Doc tells Dingo that Dot still loves him, and as her train is about to depart, Dingo proposes to her and accepts her demand that he give up his life of crime.
