Stephen, about to go on a long sea voyage, asks his daughters what they would like him to bring them. The two oldest ask for valuable gifts, but young Anastasia asks only for his safe return and a crimson flower. Swept overboard during a storm, Stephen washes ashore on a beautiful island and finds a magical palace in which he discovers and picks the crimson flower. The lord of the island lets him take the flower but requires that the man or one of his daughters return to be his companion. Anastasia steals the ring that will transport her to the beast's island to forestall her father. His gentleness wins her friendship but she still misses her family. He sends her home for a visit but insists she return by sunset. The jealous sisters trick Anastasia into staying home past sunset, and she finds her friend motionless and still.
