Roseanne (Ethel Clayton) has grown up near some diamond mines in South Africa. As a child, she became ill and a Malay nurse, Rachel Bangat (Fontaine La Rue) promised to cure her. That she did, but she also worked some voodoo on the child, who, as a grown up now displays a powerful desire for diamonds and the ability to throw evil curses on those who displease her. Sir Dennis Harlenden falls for her in spite of this, and in spite of her insistence that she is too wicked for him. Roseanne gets involved with a group of diamond smugglers headed by Syke Ravenal (Fred Maletesta). Sir Harlenden saves her from Ravenal's influence, and the old nurse dies, which enables Roseanne to immediately change into a regular, good-hearted young lady.
