Overview

Commandant le Nan-shan, le capitaine Mac Whirr est un homme taciturne. Voguer sur la mer de Chine pendant la saison des typhons ne l'inquiète pas vraiment. Quand, pendant la traversée, il voit l'aiguille du baromètre chuter comme il ne l'a jamais vue auparavant, sa première réflexion est qu'un sale temps se prépare. La mer grossit et déjà le navire embarque de l'eau. Sur le pont inférieur, deux cents coolies chinois voyagent dans des conditions effroyables. Quand son second lui suggère de changer de cap pour éviter le gros temps, il refuse, un détour impliquant des frais supplémentaires pour l'armateur. Mac Whirr est-il complètement inconscient?...
