This mythical kingdom romance, based on The Lady From Longacre by Victor Bridge, is spiced up with a mystery angle. It wasn't exactly original, but it made for an entertaining programmer. Wealthy American Tom Conway (Edmund Lowe) and his pal, pugilist Tiger Bugg (Ben Hendricks), rescue a girl from attackers during their stay in London. The girl gives her name as Isabel Francis (Dolores Costello), and the men put her up for the night. When Molly Montrose (Margaret Livingston), an actress friend of Conway's, loses her jewels, Isabel is a prime suspect -- until it is revealed that she is really a foreign princess. She is kidnapped by royal spies and taken back to her own country. Conway and Molly go to track her down. They undergo numerous thrilling adventures before rescuing the princess. Conway and Isabel are united, while Molly finds a lover of her own.
