In this lightweight drama, a gypsy girl is betrothed to a circus lion tamer. Unfortunately, he leaves Hungary to marry another woman in England. The gypsy knows nothing of the new engagement and follows him. Because he has changed his bookings, she cannot find him. The frustrated girl faints dead away and is revived by a handsome young man to whom she tells her sad tale. He attempts to find the circus performer for her, but when she hears that he has been killed, she ends up marrying the young man. They are quite happy until she learns that the lion tamer was not killed after all. Because she was betrothed to him first, she feels duty-bound to return to him. When she sees that he, too, is married, she goes back to her husband.
