This melodrama involves the old twin sisters mix-up. Exiled Russian Nihilist Ivan Pavloff (Philip Hahn) has twin daughters. In desperate need for money, he gives up one girl, Nina, to a rich couple, while the other one, Olga, stays with him. The girls grow up (to be played by Gail Kane), and Nina becomes engaged to John Huntington (Allan Hale), while Olga and her father both swear revenge on Nicholas Savaroff (Montagu Love), the man who was responsible for the death of Pavloff's wife. They sneak back into Russia, and in carrying out their scheme, Pavloff dies and Olga is the one who kills Savaroff. She meets up with Huntington, who thinks she is Nina and together they travel to America. But once they get there Olga is shot by Russian spies and Nina suddenly appears, making a very relieved Huntington aware of his mistake.
