Louise Glaum brings her femme fatale persona to World War I in this feature. Wicked Frenchwoman Marie Chaumontel (Glaum) is the mistress of Captain Henry Ravignac (Jerome Stern). She steals some papers from him, which she gives to the Germans. Then she escapes to Berlin while her lover is tried for her wrongdoing. He is found guilty of neglect, and he commits suicide. His brother, Lieutenant Charles Ravignac (Howard Hickman) swears revenge, and he becomes a counterspy by going to work for the Germans. He poses as a chauffeur to Marie's phony countess, all the while gathering information and giving it over to the Allies. Eventually he makes sure that Marie is arrested and goes to prison for her deeds. This film was adapted from the last magazine story written by author Richard Harding Davis, who died before the film's release.
