Two beautiful daughters of a wealthy merchant fall in love with the same handsome young man (Richard Hart), but because he favors the gentle modesty of Marguerite (Donna Reed), her "not quite nice" sister Marianne (LanaTurner) persuades him to seek his fortune abroad. Settled down in business in New Zealand with a friend (Van Heflin), he sends for Marguerite to join him: however, he drunkenly addresses his proposal to sensual Marianne. When the wrong sister meets up with her husband-to-be and his partner, a bitter rivalry is provoked between the men for the love of an irresistible woman.
