When the ship starts rapidly taking on water and disaster seems imminent, Jim joins his captain and other crew members in abandoning the ship and its passengers. A few days later, they are picked up by a British ship. However, the Patna and its passengers are later also saved, and the reprehensible actions of the crew are exposed. The other participants evade the judicial court of inquiry, leaving Jim to the court alone.

The court strips him of his navigation command certificate for his dereliction of duty. Jim is angry with himself, both for his moment of weakness, and for missing an opportunity to be a hero.We follow Jim as he later attempts to come to terms with his past.

He tries to remain incognito, but whenever the incident catches up with him, he abandons his place and moves further east. Eventually moving to a remote inland settlement, where Jims past can remain hidden.
