Attempting to fly an airplane to the South Pole, James Farnham and Donald Overton crash in the Antarctic wastes. Donald's leg is broken, and Farnham leaves him to die, returning to civilization and marrying Donald's former fiancée, Diane Holden, who takes pity on him. Donald is rescued by the crew of a whaler and, scarred and crazed, returns to civilization looking for revenge. He persuades Diane's father, the sponsor of the first flight, to finance another one and again takes Farnham with him as copilot. Again they crash, and this time Farnham's leg is broken. Donald cannot bring himself to leave him, and together they make their way to safety. On the way back to civilization, Farnham asks Donald's forgiveness and then kills himself, freeing Donald to find happiness with Diane.
