This crime drama begins when Anna (Seena Owen) gives up her career as a dancer to become the mistress of the wealthy playboy Alastair De Vries (Henry Sedley), but he soon tires of her and takes up with another floozie. In a rage, Anna tracks the couple down at a local restaurant and shoots Alastair to death then flees into hiding in Tahiti. Thomas McCarthy (E.K. Lincoln) is the New York detective assigned to the case who goes to the island to bring back the murderess. On the return trip, the ship sinks, and the couple swims to a remote desert island where they remain for two years. Anna falls in love with Thomas during their time alone, and she flags down a ship over Thomas' objections. The two return to New York where Anna must face trial for murder. To the judge, the jury recommends leniency for Anna by virtue of the obvious moral awakening she has experienced. The story opens in the courtroom and flashbacks are used to deliver the events that led to the trial.
