Cornwall, early 19th century. "Queer things" go on at a place called Jamaica Inn. When Mary Yellen, a strong-willed young Irish woman, tells a coachman to drop her off there, he rudely speeds past the place and then stops outside the mansion of Sir Humphrey. She gets out to complain, but the coachman throws her trunk to the ground and drives off. Soon, the seemingly kind Sir Humphrey is escorting the recently orphaned Mary to the mysterious place, where she has come to live with her Aunt Patience. It isn't long before Mary learns that her aunt's husband, Joss, leads a band of cutthroats who cause shipwrecks for profit. Mary will soon learn the truth about the gentlemanly but decadent Sir Humphrey;and about Jem, a handsome young member of the desperate band who is more than what he seems.
