Set largely in San Francisco, concluding in Australia. Jack, a sailor, leaves the sea to marry a singer, an honest girl though seduced and betrayed by a bullying sailor. The bully arranges for Jack to be shanghaied the day after his wedding, but a knife-fight aboard ship and a passing steamer return him to shore and his wife - and they emigrate to Australia. Light.
