Japanese film star Sessue Hayakawa carries the dramatic weight of this "Never the Twain Shall Meet" melodrama. Rhandah (Hayakawa), a British-educated Hindu, finds that his education means nothing when he falls in love with bigoted white girl Amy Dawe (Viola Vale). Seething with hatred, Rhandah foments a Hindu uprising in his native India. In the midst of the carnage, he finds time to kidnap the girl who spurned him. Only through the intervention of his true love, Hindu princess Nada (Tsuru Aoki, Hayakawa's wife in real life), is Rhandah prevented from exacting vengeance upon Dawe. Each to His Kind was also released as The Rajah's Amulet.
