On a sleepy tropical island filled with languid sarong-clad wahines, grass shacks and guitar-strumming natives, the owner of the "Tonga Gardens” bar keeps everyone under his control through gambling, liquor and loose women. This includes Roy, a local plantation owner, whose cultured fiancee Ellen has just arrived planning to get married. When she finds out her betrothed is habitually drunk and owes huge gambling debts, she postpones the wedding. As she tries to reform her intended, the greedy barkeep sets his sights on her. A handsome skipper then sails into the harbor looking for pearls singing “A Girl in Every Port”, and he also takes an interest in Ellen. With the three men at odds over the same girl and gambling debts, a poker game ensues for the plantation, pearls and Ellen. Poppi, the seductive island temptress, further complicates the situation.
