Matthew Ryan (Edmund Breese) is a ruthless Wall Street financier who mows down all those in his path. One unfortunate is "Square Deal" Schuyler (Sydney Gratton), but Ryan is willing to go easy on him if he can marry his daughter, Marion Schuyler (Claire Whitney). To save her father, Marion is willing to sacrifice herself, but first she lets Ryan know that he has a lot in common with Attila the Hun. This influences the moneyman to go home and read up on the conqueror, which leads to a dream sequence lasting more than half the film. When Ryan sees the savage Hun's downfall before his dreaming eyes, he wakes up with a change of heart.
