Gloria Dawn (Olive Thomas) is a young cabaret singer who is engaged to marry a wealthy man she does not love. Late one night, a strange and delirious man enters her apartment. He's an explorer who has been stricken with a tropical fever, and Gloria nurses him back to health. When he recovers, he wanders off, not recalling where he's been but remembering Gloria's face. He finally sees her again at the cabaret where she works, but she's not as thrilled to see him, since she thinks he's ungrateful for leaving the way he did. He has a few too many drinks, and when a fire breaks out, she leads him to safety. She forgives him for taking off, and they marry.
