Myles Calthorpe (Robert Warwick) is an English soldier of fortune who travels to South Africa. He goes to work for a pair of feather merchants who are, in reality, diamond smugglers. When they realize that he knows what they're up to, they fire him. So he heads for Cape Town, where he meets pretty Joan Farrant (Lois Wilson) and works for her brother, who is also a smuggler. This time, he is unaware of what is going on, so he is arrested and charged with robbery. To protect his sweetheart's brother, he goes to prison for three years. But the brother confesses to his crimes as he is dying, and Calthorpe is released to be reunited with Joan.
