Actress Mignon (Louise Glaum) is the toast of Paris until she marries young American engineer John Stanley (Matt Moore). He is commissioned to go to work in the Sahara desert, and Mignon accompanies him with their baby. But it isn't long before she is lonely and horribly bored. When a wealthy Russian, Baron Alexis (Edwin Stevens), passes through the camp, he offers to take her away to Cairo. She goes with him, and he surrounds her in luxury. Years pass, but the situation does not bring her happiness. One day she takes alms to the beggars' row and sees a filthy dope fiend accompanied by a animated little boy (Pat Moore), whom she recognizes as her husband and son. She takes them back to the palace where she is living. The Baron, enraged by this, tries to throttle her, but her husband kills him. Mignon, Stanley and the boy escape into the desert, where Stanley recovers, regains his memory and learns to forgive the wayward Mignon.
