Honorable Ted is a slovenly, bibulous South Sea Island beachcomber. The black sheep of a prominent British family, Ted is paid an annual salary to stay as far away from England as possible. Prim-and-proper missionary Martha, the sister of heathen-hating Welsh minister Owen, takes it upon herself to reform the intractable Ted. But soon, a hostile native tribe captures Martha, Owen and Ted and sentences them to a horrible death.
