In this racy comedy, a harem girl desiring to escape her life, stows away on the boat of a wealthy archaeologist as it sails for England where the young nobleman is slated to receive a large inheritance. He soon finds her, and she pleads with him to let her go on to England where she has a few relatives. He agrees, and then allows her to stay at his home during her search. It is not long before they fall in love. Unfortunately, a friend of the archaeologist tells the girl that her lover cannot possibly marry her. The distressed girl run away to Paris with an oily womanizer. Soon her true love follows to save her. He finds her singing in a cafe. He also learns that she and the gigolo were not together long. Casting notions of social convention to the wind, the nobleman asks for her hand.
