After she inherits a fortune, Ann Clemance (Viola Dana) travels to Paris to indulge herself in frivolity. She meets up with an old friend, writer Adrian Torrens (Warner Baxter), who disparages her lifestyle. Ann sees him befriend an Apache dancer and she believes he finds women in need of salvation more appealing. To spark his interest she disguises herself as an Apache (in this instance it refers to a member of the Parisian underworld, not a Native American), and robs his house. Although Torrens sees through her disguise, he doesn't let on. He just takes her through the slums of Paris to show her the misery and suffering of those less fortunate than her. The experience transforms her and she winds up adopting an orphan. Her change in attitude also wins Torrens' Heart.
