SYNOPSIS

Princess Laone, a Hawaiian composer, visits Santa Barbara, CA, as the protégée of society matron Mrs. Parrish. The princess falls in love with her patron's nephew, Keith Parrish, but foolishly heeds Mrs. Parrish's advice not to wed outside of her race. Laone rejects Keith's proposal, then attempts to drown herself. Keith rescues her, then leaves for New York City to see his dying father. When he returns, he finds that Laone has left for Hawaii with playboy and smuggler Stephen Brainard after Mrs. Parrish convinced the princess that Keith had deserted her. Keith arrives in Hawaii and is rejected again by Laone, who is ashamed to admit that she was forced to have sex with Brainard aboard his yacht, to avoid being gang-raped by the crew. After Keith is arrested for stealing a sacred necklace that was smuggled by Brainard, Laone returns to the yacht for proof of Keith's innocence. After a fight, Laone summons the harbor patrol, and Brainard is arrested with the incriminating evidence. Laone and Keith are wed soon ... +
