Synopsis / Plot
After surviving a shipwreck, San Diego tuna fisherman Mike Mascarenhas, an immigrant from Portugal, loses a hand to a shark. The following season, one of his crew, Manuel Silva, falls overboard and is killed by the sharks following the boat. Mike brings the bad news to Quita, Manuel's daughter. Moved by Quita's beauty as well as her lonely situation, Mike, who is unpopular with women, takes care of her, bringing her food and money. When he asks her to marry him, Quita confesses that she does not love him, but he insists that this does not matter to him and he will accept her as she is. Touched by his generosity, Quita agrees to marry him. At the wedding, however, she falls in love with Pipes Boley, a fellow fisherman who is Mike's best man.
