Polly, the fisherman's daughter, is in love with Ned, the village photographer, but her father is bitterly opposed to landlubbers. Ned has an inspiration. He calls on father and tells him he has decided to become a sailor. He is given an opportunity to prove his worth but he hardly fills the bill. The next day Polly induces her father to have his picture taken. The clever photographer arranges with a sailor to dress as a woman and quietly seat himself beside father when the latter has been "posed " When the camera snaps, the accomplice slips away. How Ned threatens to show the picture to the fisherman's wife and brings about consent to the marriage makes a laughable finale.
