Fifi (Marguerite Clark) is an actress in Napoleon-era France. She wins a lottery and leaves Cartouche, the man she loves (William Sorelle) to go live with a rich family. The conniving Louis Bourcet (Jean Gauthier) tries to woo her because he wants her money. But Fifi wants nothing to do with him, and ultimately she gives up her money and returns to Cartouche. But Cartouche, believing he is too old, refuses to marry her until Napoleon himself orders him to do it. Only then does he realize how much Fifi loves him. This film was originally a play by Molly Elliot Seawell.
