Childhood friends Pete Quilliam (Carl Brisson) and Philip Christian (Malcolm Keen) take markedly different paths in adulthood with Pete becoming a fisherman and Philip a lawyer. When they both fall in love with the same woman, Kate Cregeen (Anny Ondra), the men come into conflict not only with each other, but with the strict Manx society that governs their actions.
