Cardiff in 1878 is grimy, crowded and grey, and Ellen dreams of escaping her dreary life as a domestic for the sea. But when she falls in love with Samuel she is able to fulfil her destiny by running away with him. Life at sea is brutal and dangerous, and when circumstances bring her home the hardships of working class life and racism begin to poison their lives.

Lle brwnt a diflas yw Caerdydd yn 1878 i Ellen sy’n breuddwydio am ddianc o’i bywyd yn gwasanaethu. Mae’n syrthio mewn cariad gyda Samuel ac yn llwyddo i wireddu ei breuddwyd trwy redeg i ffwrdd gydag ef. Ond mae bywyd ar y môr yn beryglus a chreulon, a phan mae’n dychwelyd adref mae’n darganfod bod caledi bywyd y dosbarth gweithiol a hiliaeth yn dechrau gwenwyno eu bywydau.
