Captain Charles Foster of the whaler, Policy, is much taken with Dorothy, the daughter of a Sydney official. He is planning to propose when, to his disgust, he discovers he has a rival. Foster and Dorothy quarrel and he sails away, not returning for two years. Again they quarrel and he leaves again, but when he returns he brings a prize that wins him honours and Dorothy's hand.
