The story of a steamship and her crew beset by a tempest. Captain MacWhirr was an ordinary, stolid man. However, when his steamer Nan-Shan blunders into a hurricane, he and his crew must pull together to survive. The steadfast courage of an undemonstrative captain and the imaginative readiness of his young first mate becomes a partnership vital to survival as they are challenged from without by the elements, and from within by human doubts and fears.
