Rich woman treats deckhands rudely, gets shipwrecked w/ one of them, they fall in love but when they are rescued they return to how they were before. At first, the theme is that class differences are important. As the tragedy unfolds a different theme emerges. Under some circumstances, class differences can be erased.
