Paul, a French artist (Douglas Gerrard), paints a portrait of country girl Mignon (Ruth Clifford), that wins a prize. He heads for the Latin Quarter of Paris, promising Mignon he will return, but he promptly forgets her. Mignon walks all the way to Paris, only to find Paul with another woman. She tries to kill herself, but she is saved by a rich man who dies shortly thereafter and leaves his fortune to her. Paul, meanwhile, loses himself in the high life, which quickly becomes the low life as he descends into an alcoholic stupor. But he's not hopeless, since his friends convince Mignon to come to his aid. She does and helps effect a cure. Gerrard both directed and acted in this film in the most cliched manner possible.
