Harold, Lord Ingestre (Jack Mulhall) goes to India with his regiment. He is engaged to Lady Brenda Carlyon (Marguertie de la Motte), but Colonel Hector Grant (Frank Elliot) decides that he wants her -- no matter that he has already promised to marry Olive Whitburn (Ruth Stonehouse). He merely casts Olive aside and when she sends him a note, he makes it seem like it was addressed to Lord Ingestre, which makes him look bad in his fiancee's eyes. To get to the root of all this, Lord Ingestre locates Olive in an Italian village. Everyone winds up there just as a volcano erupts. All escape, with the exception of tColonel Grant. This melodrama, based on the play by Cecil Raleigh and Henry Hamilton, was typical Drury Lane stuff, but the volcano made for a distinctive climax.
