Sailor Martin Eden serves on a Merchant Marine ship run by a sadistic captain. He writes of his harsh experiences in a journal, which he one day hopes to have published, exposing the cruelty and barbarity that exists in the Merchant Marines. Escaping, he sets about bringing his victimizers to justice and in the process freeing his companion Joe Dawson, who was wrongly accused of mutiny. Along the way, Eden falls in love with the impoverished Connie Dawson (Joe's sister) and rejects the wealthy Ruth Morley.
