Egypt (Ethel Barrymore) and Faro are about to be married when the chief of their Gypsy camp (Frank Montgomery) interrupts the ceremony. He sells Egypt off to a wealthy man (William Mandeville), pawning her off as the man's daughter. But before they are separated, the lovers swear to wait for each other. However, Egypt grows impatient and becomes engaged to Nicholas Van Kleet, a society man (William B. Davidson). The old chief dies and Faro takes his place. He plans to go fetch Egypt, believing she is still waiting for him, but he gets in a brawl and kills the sheriff's brother. He takes refuge in Egypt's home, and she now refuses to return with him. But when he is captured, her loyalty comes to the fore. She helps him escape, and they run off together.
