It is the pre-Civil War days in Virginia, and John Valiant (Arthur Shirley) and Edward Sasoon (Edward J. Piel) are both vying for the hand of Judith Fairfax (Virginia Kraft). Their rivalry results in a duel in which Sasoon dies, after which Judith apparently spurns Valiant. Twenty years later, Judith's daughter Shirley Dandridge (Kathlyn Williams) is courted by John Valiant, Jr. (also played by Arthur Shirley). It turns out that Sasoon was not killed by Valiant; he shot himself. Judith has loved Valiant all along; their separation was the result of a misunderstanding. Their feelings for each other find voice in the romance between their children.
