After WWI, opera singer Gerve (Grace Cunard) meets a member of the German army, Karl Wetz (Herbert Prior) and his wife, Vyera (Dora Rogers), in Paris. Vyera senses that something is going on between Gerve and her husband, but she can't quite figure it out. Gerve's sweetheart, Phillippe (Edward Cecil), also wonders what is going on, but Gerve comes clean with him. When the war was going on, Phillippe had fallen into the hands of the Germans and Gerve had sacrificed herself to Wetz in order to save his life. The result was a child, and now Wetz wants to renew his affair with Gerve. This painful situation is finally relieved when the jealous Mrs. Wetz angrily kills her husband. With Wetz gone, Phillippe and Gerve are able to pursue their love in peace. The Great War (otherwise known as WWI) had only been over for a couple of months when this drama was released, so Universal must have pumped it out pretty quickly.
