In this silent romance, an Orthodox Jewish girl falls in love with a Christian fellow, an aspiring author. The girl's traditional father is outraged and forbids the relationship; the broken-hearted suitor leaves her. Not long afterward, she gets a job at a publishing house and using her considerable feminine wiles, manages to talk the smitten owner into launching a daring new publicity stunt using her beau's manuscript. The stunt would involve placing an ad in a major newspaper asking the "lost" author to come to the publishing house. The boss is impressed, but insists she read the story to him. That night she goes to his apartment and as she begins reading, the exciting medieval story unfolds on the screen. In the end, the campaign is a great success and romantic bliss ensues.
