In the wake of the Russian Revolution, a beautiful young aristocrat is assaulted by wild-eyed rebel Sajenko. The girl manages to escape her attacker with virtue intact, and shortly thereafter she relocates to a European colony reserved for expatriate Russians. Here her path again crosses that of Sajenko, now a high-ranking Soviet secret agent. Unrepentantly, Sajenko once more tries to rape the heroine. Pretending to succumb to his "charms," the girl convinces Sajenko to sign a paper that will seal his doom upon his return to the USSR. The far-from-admirable title character was played by Michael Bohnen, a baritone with the Metropolitan Opera Company (just why Bohnen was hired for a silent film was anybody's guess).
