Based on a popular interpretation of a well-known Scriptural text. On the birth of their illegitimate child, a man and woman are forced to separate. One phase of the story deals with the industry, social and religious life of fisher-folk on the coast of South Australia between the Gulfs of Spencer and St. Vincent. Some action is placed in Tasmania and the denouement is effected at Adelaide.
