Smuggling Chinamen is a lucrative job and the old fisherman follows it successfully. One daughter, Lois, lives with him. The other, who has been deserted, struggles back to her old home, only to be met with anger by the father. Lois' sweetheart is the coastguard. He receives word that smugglers are expected to land Chinamen that night. He posts extra guards. Lois tells her sister to hide in the cave where they used to play as children, and that she will bring her food after dark. The girl does as she is bid, unwitting of the fact that the cave is the rendezvous of the smugglers. Lois arrives just before the father comes to the place with the Chinamen. The coastguard and his men attack the party, which scatters. The old fisherman flees, but Nemesis overtakes him at the top of a cliff, when one of the Chinamen appears unexpectedly. The old man, startled, falls over the cliff to his death.
