Six years later when his buddy is killed, attempting to blow up the sunken ship, on the orders of Suntan Radford (Adele Mara) and Tony Sullivan (Jim Davis), deep-sea diver "Gunner" McNeil (Rod Cameron) has his suspicions aroused... especially since Suntan is the daughter of the ship's captain that died when the ship sunk, and Sullivan was a crew member. Plus the fact the ship had over a million dollars in cash on board. During the course of his investigation, he becomes romantically involved with Ginger Sullivan (Lorna Gray, the singer at the swanky resort hotel on the coast near the sunken ship.
