A happy-go-lucky fellow with two accomplices and a knack for singing, takes on a job to fly to an exotic south sea island and steal a fortune in pearls. Upon arrival he finds that the pearls are in the Temple of the Sky Goddess and are guarded by fierce natives. While trying to figure out a plan, he is chosen as the beloved of the island’s beautiful princess during her “Song of the Sarong” and sensuous “Gardenia Dance” ceremony. But can she save him from being burned at the stake when he is caught with his hand in the pearl jar?
