Based upon a short review in a film magazine, a young woman (Talmadge) marries a wealthy scoundrel so that her mother can live in luxury. While vacationing on his yacht, she becomes shipwrecked and is cast on a desert island with a stoker (Standing) for her companion. They eventually fall in love, but are rescued just before celebrating their wilderness-witnessed nuptials. Her husband later dies, so the lovers are then able to marry.
