This Graustark-ian tale stars virile Earle Williams. After serving in the Great War, international crook Anthony Trent (Williams) resolves to go straight. He wants to track down the English private who saved his life, and discovers his true identity is Arthur Grenvil (Geoffrey Webb), the son of the Earl of Rosecarrel (Emmett King). Trent falls in love with Grenvil's sister, Daphne (Kathryn Adams), and sets out to win the Earl's approval. He discovers that the Earl is being blackmailed by Count Michael Temesvar, the prime minister of Croatia (Eric Mayne), over some documents. To get them, Trent gets a job as chauffeur of the silver car that the Count buys in London. He travels to Croatia and, with the help of a pretty dancer, he faces danger to obtain the papers. The Count kills the dancer, but Trent makes it back to England to receive Daphne's love and the Earl's blessings.
