This adventure-comedy was based on a novel by Alice Duer Miller. Alicia Lee (Constance Binney) is bored with her New York society life and she finds the man she is supposed to marry, Richard Bidgley (Mark Smith), even more tedious. In search of excitement, she travels to Santiago in Central America to visit her old school chum Rosa (Lucy Fox). When she arrives she gets more excitement than she bargained for; Lucy's husband, Don Louis Vargas (Crane Wilbur), is the leader of a band of revolutionaries. The revolutionaries want to overthrow the government headed by stern dictator Don Mariano Calderon (Ward Crane). When the fighting starts, Vargas is separated from Rosa, and he gives Alicia a message to deliver to her. Alicia, however, is captured by Calderon's men. She does everything she can to escape -- she even offers the handsome Calderon a kiss -- but she is unsuccessful. Finally Calderon squelches the revolutionaries. When he brings Alicia to the boat that will take her back to America, he offers to release Vargas if she will give him the kiss she promised. She does, then leaves. Not long after, Calderon -- now exiled because he set Vargas free -- arrives in New York, and Alicia is happy to choose him over Bidgley.
