The film opens with a dead body being hauled aboard a sailing ketch. Janet, the widow of the corpse, is watching the body (Bill) as it is being laid out on deck, and thinks back to how it all started. From the events of the past two days of her life, and when as newlyweds they boarded the ketch for their honeymoon.
Within hours, suspicion, jealousy and adultery break down their relationship and destroys their marriage. Then Bill disappears. Layne a strangely beautiful sensuous woman, had joined the cruise with Glenn Lawrence, to help him with some vague business scheme of which we learn more later. Layne's only desire is constant sex, with anyone. When Glenn ignores her needs, she turns to Bill and seduces him. When Bill disappears, she seeks out the black deck hand, whom her man Glenn had specifically warned her to stay away from.
The third couple, Pete and Dorothy Lindsay-have their own problems. He is a drunk and his wife, a lesbian. Dorothy is with the new bride (Janet) when she discovers her husband has been making love to Layne. She then turns her consolation into a seduction.
When the sailing ketch returns from the cruise, it is finally revealed what happened to the husband-how he had died, which events involve Layne's man, the Captain's daughter and Pete Lindsay.
The film ends with a violent chase, and a killing that takes place between the black crew member and Glenn, and divulges the purpose of his business on board ...
