Armitage is notorious in Samoa for his immoral and violent behaviour. He brutally mistreats his cook Amona, a man from Niue, but the Islander stays with him to try and protect Armitage's wife and child. Mrs Armitage dies of tuberculosis and Amona continues to care for the child, eventually taking him away to Australia.
