This implausible drama finds a jilted suitor getting married to another woman. She agrees to the union in spite of her knowledge that her intended still loves the woman who left him. The one who left marries another man, but her husband remains jealous of the man she jilted and files for divorce. The distraught object of both men's affections kills herself rather than be the subject of scandal. Though taken from a novel by H.G. Wells, the story is not a science fiction tale.
