The career of actress Katherine MacDonald was already suffering when she starred as the unappealing title character of this drama. Lola Daintry (MacDonald) is an actress who's mad at the world, and especially ministers, one of whom -- her father -- was so cruel that he drove her mother out of the house. When Bully Haynes (Melbourne MacDonald) wants her help in showing up a group of South Seas missionaries, she's more than happy to assist. But Lola doesn't realize she's being used so that Haynes can gain control over the copra trade from his rival, Cyrus Flint (Robert Ellis). Lola lands on the island in a lifeboat, posing as a castaway, but once she is taken in by the missionaries she begins to change her harsh opinions of them. One of them, who happens to be her own father (Joseph J. Downling), saves Flint's soul. Lola winds up foiling Haynes' plans and becoming a convert herself.
