Drayton is appointed governor of the tropical island of Bunga-Bunga and, along with his aide, Montgomery, soon falls in love with the easy-going life. Unknown to Drayton, Montgomery takes a native wife, though he has a spouse back home. Wild rumors of the two men's behavior get to England
and Drayton's nagging sister and Montgomery's wife come to the island to investigate. The two men are forced to use a series of ruses to fool the women. Decent stage farce loses a lot on the screen.
