Priscilla Dean's star was beginning to fade around the time she appeared as a passionate Andulusian peasant in this drama. Young Gallito (Allan Forrest) wants very badly to become a matador. His sweetheart, Dolores (Dean), does everything she can to help him and she wheedles Pedro, a renowned bullfighter (Matthew Betz), into helping him, too. Gallito becomes a success, but he is vamped by Ardita (Claire Delorez) after Pedro is killed in the ring. Dolores becomes a dancer at a cabaret owned by Cavallo (Stuart Holmes), and when he tries to attack her, Gallito comes to her rescue. Dolores, however, is still steaming over their rift and refuses to reconcile with him. She discovers that Cavallo is plotting to drug Gallito the next time he is in the ring, which will certainly mean his death. In spite of Ardita's attempts to stop her, Dolores escapes and rushes to the bullring. She kills the bull with a sword before it can do in Gallito, and finally the couple are reunited. When Cavallo's treachery is discovered, he is attacked by an angry mob.
