A mechanical problem forces a Portuguese Navy Pilot to land on the Atlantic Ocean off the islets of Berlengas. Julião, an experienced sea-wolf, and his crew of fishermen, Pedro, Lacrau and Serrote, fish the pilot, and bring him safely ashore. The pilot is rescued at the manor house of the largest isle, where a beautiful girl lives alone. Rosa's humanitarian interest in helping the young man soon converts in a romantic fancy. When he returns to Lisbon, in the continent, she goes with him - and is engulfed in the lively customs of the city, with dress-up balls, dancing, night-clubs and ladies of the night, gambling, and drinking. The opposite of her earlier secluded life... The pilot seems less and less attracted to Rosa, dancing away in the arms of Lisette, and designing a daring project to cross the Atlantic in an airplane alone with a foolish Brazilean Pilot. The two pilots do attempt the ocean crossing, but they fail, and after a rescue attempt by the Navy, they are declared as lost... Written by
