Teen rebel Chubasco joins the crew of a high seas clipper and finds himself on a tuna boat skippered by the one man who'd rather see him dead: girlfriend Bunny's irate father Sebastian. When Sebastian learns his identity, tensions rise.
After assaulting a cop during a beach party blowout, teen rebel Chubasco (Christopher Jones) gets two choices: do time for the crime or join the crew of a high seas clipper and face the inherent risks of commercial fishing. Choosing the latter and before boarding ship, Chubasco elopes with girlfriend Bunny (Susan Strasberg) and then finds himself on a tuna boat skippered by the one man who'd rather see him dead: Bunny's irate father Sebastian (Richard Egan). When Sebastian learns his new deckhand's identity, tensions rise with the tides - and only one man may return to Bunny's waiting arms. A solid movie debut for Jones, soon to achieve greater fame in Wild in the Streets, Three in the Attic and Ryan's Daughter, this scenic romance also boasts a seasoned supporting cast: Ann Sothern, Audrey Totter, Preston Foster and Simon Oakland.
CHUBASCO (Christopher Jones) is a wayward youth who is given a choice by the presiding judge. His choices are go to jail or take an honest job on a fishing boat. He chooses to set sail, leaving behind his girl Bunny (Susan Strasberg) and her father Sebastian (Richard Egan), who obviously has it out for the wayward teen. He works on a tuna boat, learning to break free of a life of crime. He also meets a bordello madame named Angela (Ann Sothern) who may or may not be his mother.
