Mariposa (Pola Negri) is a dancer in a Spanish café who is discovered by theatrical manager Señor Sprotti (Cesare Gravina) around the same time that Ralph Bayne, a wealthy American (Wallace MacDonald), sees her. Bayne falls in love with her immediately, as does his chauffeur, Dan Murray (Robert W. Fraser). Because of Sprotti, Mariposa is able to come to America, where both Bayne and Murray continue to woo her -- Bayne with a lot more success. Bertha Sedgwick (Gertrude Astor) is also interested in Bayne, and she rivals Mariposa for his affections. She happens to have a husband (Edwards Davis), and when he catches her in Bayne's apartments, Mariposa, who is also there, claims to be the one compromised. Although Bayne offers to marry her, Mariposa has been disillusioned by his behavior, and she chooses Murray instead.
