Love and reincarnation are the subjects of this silent feature. An actress (Valkyrien) and her boyfriend (Harris Gordon) have a sense of deja vu when they meet, and they should -- in 2083 B.C., she made images in the Egyptian tombs and he was Prince Tsa. Although they loved, his father, the king, forbade them to wed. The prince was mortally wounded when he tried to save the image maker from the sacrificial altar, and she wound up being thrown to the crocodiles. There is no king around in the modern part of the story, but a movie producer instead. Since he lusts after the actress, he does all he can to keep the couple apart. When her fiancé is injured, the producer lies to the actress, telling her that the boy has gone home because his father disapproves of their upcoming marriage. So she goes to Egypt to make a film with the producer. Her lover follows and they are reunited at the tomb of Prince Tsa.
