Disgusted with his spendthrift son, Kirk Anthony's father has Kirk shanghaied and taken to Panama, where he (Kirk) attracts the attention of Mrs. Edith Cortlandt; falls in love with Chiquita, the daughter of a Panamanian general; gets a railroad job through Stephen Cortlandt (Edith's husband); and decides to make something of himself when he meets Allen Allan, a Negro soldier of fortune.
