Childhood sweethearts with lofty goals do not a good Christian lifetime make, in this doomed romance directed by Maurice Tourneur. Glory Quayle (Mae Busch) and John Storm (Richard Dix) have been in love since their youth. Now, all grown up, they decide to travel to London -- John to enter a monastery and Glory to become a nurse. But the lure of the city is too great, and Glory instead becomes a London stage star. John, who can't get Glory out of his mind, renounces his vows. But the nasty Lord Robert Ure (Cyril Chadwick), who has designs on Glory himself, convinces a London mob that John is predicting the end of the world. Incited, the mob goes after John, trying to make sure that his life ends before the world does.
