Thomas Dixon, who wrote The Clansmen (which became Birth of a Nation), wrote and directed this melodrama. Dr. David Hale (Robert Ellis) is a student of psychoanalysis fascinated by the sleepwalking habits of his sweetheart, Ann Page (Madelyn Clare). Page comes under the power of her subconscious and falls in love with Donald Duncan (Warner Richmond), a criminal. She marries him and he takes her to a cabin where she finally realizes his true nature -- and suffers his abuse as a result. The couple living at the cabin (Gustav Von Seyffertitz and Helen Ware) don't realize that Duncan is their own son. One night after Ann and Duncan have a fight, he is found murdered. Hale suspects Ann was the killer, but it turns out to be his mother; still unaware of his identity, she killed him for some stolen jewels. Ann and Hale are happily reunited.
