David Morgan is a gifted violinist who is kidnapped by an evil cousin after his debut concert. He is given up for dead by his sweetheart Dilys, but his mother hires detectives to investigate his disappearance. Lady Gwenneth is the noblewoman who finds David barely alive on the beach in Wales. She nurses him back to health, but David suffers from amnesia from the kidnapping experience. David's memory returns when he hears an orchestra play a familiar song. Dilys arrives to locate David, which infuriates Gwen, and Gwen pushes Dilys off a high cliff and commits suicide when she believes she is a murderess. David and Dilys are free to resume their romance after Dilys is rescued unharmed. John Stuart, Edith Pearson, Yvonne Thomas, George Leyton, and Fred Rains star in this maudlin and mediocre melodrama.
