Captain Tom Lingard, en route to assist with recapturing a friend’s stolen land, is waylaid by a distress call from a yacht stranded at The Shore of Refuge. But when Lingard falls in love with Mrs. Travers, one of the yacht’s passengers, his attempts to help both those on the marooned boat and his friends come to a tragic end.
