Corinne La Force (Pinna Nesbit), who is half Indian, has fallen for Arnold Curtis (Arthur Ashley), the nephew of her guardian Henry Hasbrook (Alec B. Francis). Hasbrook tries to keep the two apart and is writing a letter to his nephew when Corinne comes in and murders him. Arnold, meanwhile, has become entangled in the affairs of John Fleming (Montagu Love) and his neglected wife, Marcia (June Elvidge). Arnold, who has befriended Marcia, takes her to a roadhouse, where she repulses his advances by hitting him with a bottle. Because of his disheveled condition, Arnold is accused of Hasbrook's murder. But Corinne finally comes clean, and then stabs herself to death. Fleming realizes he needs to give his wife more attention and the couple reconcile.
