Game warden Miller lives on an isolated island off the Carolina coast. The only other inhabitant is Evvie, an naive young girl to whom Miller is attracted. Traver, a black musician on the run from a lynch mob after falsely being accused of rape, lands on the island. Miller wants to turn him in and remove him from the tryst, but Evvie likes Traver and protects him. A preacher arrives from the mainland to rescue Evvie from her situation, and Traver's presence is discovered. Miller is now forced to decide whether to turn him over to the mob and lose standing in the girl's eyes.

I'm just kinda jumpy, you know this Miller guy might not go for my being here and eating his food and smoking his cigarettes, but you're real cool. I mean like, I don't even frighten ya. How come?
You're just like old Jem. He owned the house before Miller came. He made me slingshots!
Slingshots? Well, I don't dig that kinda jazz, but I'd like to tell ya this, you gotta whole lot of soul to be so young.
