20 years ago, Captain Drake (Ralph Ince) fished a lifeboat full of victims from a shipwreck out of the sea - because he wants to rape the woman (Priscilla Dean) among them, her husband Len Andrews (William Farnum) and his young son Cole (Wally Albright) are thrown back into the lifeboat and marooned again. Before Drake can rape her though, the woman commits suicide.

Now: Len Andrews has been blinded by the past experience, but his son Cole (now played by Rex Bell) takes good care of him, and he makes dad proud, being the hero of the local fire brigade, a hero to such an extent that he is to be awarded with a medal. Plus, he is in love with Betty (Sally Blane), the wholesome girl-next-door. Then though, when he is to receive his medal, Cole falls for the charms of slutty Estelle (Eve Southern), Betty's cousin of all things, and Betty understandably breaks up with him. There is also a new boss at the fire brigade, who immediately fires Cole for having missed the latest fire (he was with Estelle at that time) - but the real reason is because he lusts after Betty and thus wants to break Cole. Betty is even somehow attracted to the man ... but the problem is that he is in fact Captain Drake who is responsible for Cole's son's death. Cole is too young to remember, but his father recognizes him by his laugh.

It all comes to a showdown when Captain Drake wants to rape Betty, who never saw more in him than a means to make Cole jealous - and Estelle calls Cole for help. Cole tries to wrestle Drake down, but is defeated - but his father still has a score to settle with Drake, so he turns out all the lights and fights Drake in the dark ... and in the dark, a blind man's always in advantage. Ultimately, blind dad kills Drake, and Cole and Betty are reunited.

 

Very creaky cheap drama that is in style way too reminiscent of both stageplays and the silent era to really work, so there's hamming it up aplenty in front of static cameras while a mediocre ensemble cast tries to make its way through an awfully constructed drama that despite its title has very little to do with the sea. One of these forgotten films that best remains forgotten.
