While studying dance in Hungary, British ballerina Leonide Sturdee (Jacqueline Logan) suffers a crippling accident. Enter faith healer Anton Ragatzy (Lou Tellegan), who assures Leonide that she'll walk again if only she places herself in his hands. But Leonide considers Ragatzy to be a fraud and sends him on his way. By now hopelessly in love with the heroine, Ragatzy follows her back to England, begging to be allowed to cure her. Eventually she agrees, whereupon the long-awaited miracle occurs (though it's left up to the viewer whether or not Ragatzy really has the power to heal). The Outsider was based on a play by Dorothy Brandon.
