Charlie Walker (Jeffrey Lynn), a middle-aged businessman, grows weary of his middle-class life and his family. The stress gets so bad that Walker flees his responsibilities and takes to the open sea in his boat. A storm destroys the vessel, and he winds up stranded on a Caribbean island. Once there, he mixes with the locals and falls in love with a younger woman, Elizabeth Moore (Leila Barry). But Walker starts to feel the strain of his new life and wonders if he made the right decision.
