Aurora Meredith (Dorothy Phillips) is the daughter of the village blacksmith (William Ellingford). Because she has a promising voice, her family does everything they can to develop her talent. A wealthy New York woman hears her sing and sends her to Europe to study. But the woman dies, and Aurora borrows money for her last year from a hot-blooded Italian man. Instead of being paid back financially, the Italian wants her love, and she rejects him. So he attends her New York opening and shoots her, then himself. But instead of dying, Aurora loses her beautiful voice. All the influential friends she has acquired leave her and she winds up going back to her country home. There her voice is restored, along with her humility, and she marries a local poet.
