In Gibralter a sea captain has a mousy wife and a cozy existence. But on the Ivory Coast, he has a passionate minx for a wife—and a life of gaiety. But, both wives become tired of their life-styles. The cozy wife wants to kick up her heels the vivacious wife wants to be a homebody now and then. When the cozy wife visits him one day at his Ivory Coast place—he just barely escapes detection. The wives meet—but as each has a different view of him—they don't at first realize they're married to the same man. His mate does all he can to help, but not even the captain's own adroitness can save him in the end.
