Harvey, the arrogant and spoiled son of an indulgent absentee-father, falls overboard from a transatlantic steamship and is rescued by a fishing vessel on the Grand Banks.

The captain offers him a low-paid job, until they return to port, as part of the crew that turns him into a mature, considerate young man.
