This three hanky melodrama follows the tragic love between a French ballerina and an Englishman during WW I. He is called to war, but before he goes, he promises his pregnant lover that he will return. Unfortunately, he loses his memory in battle and never does. Instead, he goes back to London and marries a wealthy socialite. The ballerina eventually comes to London for a performance. There she encounters her old lover. His memory slowly returns and he is delighted to learn that he has fathered a child because his new wife cannot have children. The loving ballerina takes pity on her and reluctantly gives them her child before she dies.
