A small island off the west coast of Ireland is so remote no doctor will agree to live there. When the Coriander is wrecked, one of the crew is separated from the others. Pat and Roddy find him lying under the cliffs with a broken leg. When they learn he is a doctor, they hide him in a cottage until the rest of the crew leaves for the mainland. With no way to escape, the doctor begins to visit the sick on the island, but he does not forgive them.
