Rosetta Cranleigh becomes stranded on an island after a storm overturns the boat she is on along with its passengers. On the island with her is Lucas, a cyncial young man interested in Egyptology and Simon, who was the deckhand on the boat. Simon confesses to Rosetta that he was running away from England because he was accused of murder. Simon claims that he is innocent, and Rosetta believes him. Eventually, the three survivors are rescued by pirates. Lucas manages to get his freedom, but Simon and Rosetta are sold into slavery.
After careful planning and scheming, Rosetta and Simon manage to escape. Rosetta plans to go to England, but Simon reminds her that as long as he is accused of murder, he can never return home. Although he is fond of Rosetta, he persuades her to return home. Rosetta is hurt, but then decides to discover the true murderer. She crosses paths with Lucas, who promises to help Rosetta bring Simon home. However, Lucas is in love with Rosetta, and Rosetta must choose which man she really loves.
