Although the plot to this romance was complicated, the actors didn't have all that much to do, which was just as well; the star was Mary Philbin, an immensely charming actress with a limited amount of talent. Mitsi (Philbin) is an orphan girl raised in a convent. Her grandfather had disowned her mother and now wants to find her. The people he has hired to help him, however, are dishonest and want to get their hands on the money due Mitsi. One of them, Madame Bolomeff (Rose Dione), spirits the girl away from the convent and puts her up in a room over a squalid Parisian cafe. She runs away to live with her friend from the convent, who has been adopted by Christian (Robert Cain). Mitsi goes to work as a maid for her grandfather and eventually her true identity is revealed. After saving Christian from marrying an adventuress, Mitsi weds him herself.
