Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this German melodrama, misfortune follows misfortune for the girl waiting in the rain. She is eloping with a young man who is to pick her up. Alas, he does not appear. Feverish with pneumonia, she is rescued by another young man who takes her back to her father's house. She recovers from her illness, and the attentive young man replaces her former lover in her affections. What the girl and her new lover don't know is that her first lover did not stand her up; he was killed in an accident en route to their rendezvous. The new boyfriend suffers from tremendous guilt when he discovers that he had an accidental hand in her previous love's death, and shortly after that he dies in a suspicious air crash.
