Three men down on their luck in Tahiti agree to ship out on a vessel whose officers have died of smallpox.Their desperate venture inspires them to a further idea: they will steal the schooner and its cargo of champagne, sell them, and live a plentiful life. The thought is intoxicating... and so is the cargo, which they sample. Inattention nearly brings them to grief in a sudden storm. This sobering experience is followed by another — apparently the dead officers had a similar ambition! — and their dreams of riches vanish.
