Conrad, in fuga da Vienna, si rifugia a Hong Kong, dove vive di espedienti. Turbolento e cercaguai viene espulso dalla polizia e spedito a Macao, sul traghetto 'Fa Tsan', guidato dal capitano Hart. Ma anche la polizia portoghese gli vieta lo sbarco, per cui viene costretto a stazionare sul traghetto, con grosso disappunto del comandante, che tenta con ogni mezzo di liberarsi di lui. La simpatia di Conrad e la sua irruenza gli procurano molte simpatie tra l'equipaggio e suscitano l'interesse di Liz, una giovane insegnante che compie periodicamente la traversata con le sue allieve. Liz decide di iniziare una campagna di stampa a favore di Conrad; ma l'iniziativa fallisce a causa dell'interessato, che, sceso clandestinamente a terra, viene coinvolto in una rissa. Durante uno dei tanti viaggi, il traghetto incrocia una giunca in fiamme. Spinto da Li e dagli altri passeggeri, Conrad obbliga il capitano ad accostare; ma la giunca, carica di dinamite, esplode causando gravi danni al traghetto. Intanto scoppia un tifone e, di fronte al gretto comportamento di Hart, Conrad prende le redini del comando ed evita il peggio. Purtroppo il natante, alla deriva, finisce sulle coste cinesi, dove viene assalito dai pirati: con l'aiuto dell'equipaggio e del capitano, Conrad riesce a mettere fuori combattimento i pirati ed a condurre il vecchio traghetto fino a Hong Kong, dove cola a picco, dopo che tutti i passeggeri sono sbarcati. Alla fine Conrad ottiene un permesso di soggiorno: la sua condotta coraggiosa gli ha assicurato l'affetto di Liz e la stima di Hart.
