This Hampton Del Ruth production is a very odd comedy-drama. Two sisters, Eleanor and Mary Douglas (Alta Allen and Irene Rich respectively), are both engaged to be married. Eleanor, who is about to wed district attorney William Bradley (Milton Sills), convinces Mary to break up with her fiancé, vivisectionist Dr. Paul Graydon (Henry B. Walthall). But before her wedding, Eleanor is handed a glass of water by Graydon. After taking a drink she faints. Graydon pronounces her dead and she is buried. But things start looking suspicious when a kitten drinks from the same glass and also keels over dead. The kitten, however, comes back to life. Bradley dashes to the graveyard, but Eleanor's body is missing. She is actually in Graydon's home, where he is about to use her in an experiment. He is halted when Mary shoots him. Laura LaVarnie and Tully Marshall add comic relief as the girl's maiden aunt and her unwilling suitor.
