Disfigured in the war, a young man returns to home and hearth only to be revolted by the pity of his fiancee. When the girl (Fritzi Ridgeway) receives another suitor, the young veteran (Gene Gowing) goes on a wild spree with an army buddy (Paddy O'Flynn). Sobering up, he realizes that all is lost and returns to Paris, where he opens a club for disfigured war veterans. Ridgeway, meanwhile, learns the truth from a friend (Betty Baker) and travels to Paris where the lovers are reunited. This muddled melodrama from low-budget Sterling Pictures marked the third solo directorial assignment of French-born Robert Florey, formerly an assistant to Frank Borzage.
