French Anne and her boxing lover are characters on the Javanese waterfront; he kills her after she falls for a sea captain

Excited by the arrival of his wife, Captain Davidson and ship’s mate Nobby prepare a welcome dinner. Susan, however, has no intention of being a captain’s wife and leaves after a fierce argument. Drowning his sorrows in a bar on the Javanese waterfront, the captain meets ‘laughing’ Anne; but when a man from her past threatens to kill her, she entreats the ship’s crew to take her with them.

Their prize was gold… and a woman in the sinister dives of the Java Sea!
