When Gerald Elliot (Jay Eaton) becomes involved with Lotta St. Regis, a notorious snake dancer (Nell Craig), his cousin Christina (Wanda Hawley) decides to rescue him from her clutches. She heads over to Lotta's house, as does Adrian Maitland (Jerome Patrick), whose younger brother is also involved with the vamp. Christina and Maitland meet on Lotta's front porch, and he mistakes her for the snake dancer. She allows him to believe this, and he takes her prisoner on board his yacht. Christina finally tells him she's not Lotta, but he has fallen in love with her, so they get married. They keep it a secret, however, until Lotta tells Gerald's family that Christina compromised herself with Maitland. The couple pulls out their wedding license and Gerald dumps Lotta, who shrugs her shoulders and goes off in search of her next victim.
