Sally, played by Mary Miles Minter, lives in the hulk of an old ship with her grandfather, Captain Ward, her mother having died during childbirth. The Captain, not knowing his daughter had been secretly married before Sally's birth, always vowed vengeance against the man responsible for her death.

Their dog strays from the ship one day and Sally takes off in pursuit, winding up at the house of Judge Gordon. A resident at the Gordon household, Hugh Schuyler, falls in love with Sally, leading to a budding relationship of which Captain Ward doesn't approve of. He chases the young man off. Sally then sneaks off to a party at the Judge's house, naturally being caught and returned home by her grandfather. Captain Ward and the Judge ultimately wind up in a struggle and Sally is knocked unconcious. She awakens to learn that Judge Gordon has convinced the Captain of his marriage to Sally's mother. They become fast, new, friends while Sally and Hugh are permitted to marry. The film concludes as they all sail off in the Captain's ship.
