‘Lucky Ryland’ is the captain of the ‘Bulinga’ ship. He secures a contract to transport a cargo of pedigree bulls from South America to England which must be done in record time. Ill-will develops amongst the over-worked crew, and tensions rise when a young and beautiful girl, Ruth, joins the ship. Ryland proposes but when she delays in responding, he takes to drinking heavily. She is actually falling in love with another member of the crew, who has to rescue Ruth from a drunken attack by Ryland. Isolated by the crew, Ryland gives up trying to captain the ship until it becomes trapped in a violent storm. This becomes the true test of his position and his true character.
