Lady Tsen Mei played Moy Tai, whose father Quon Foo (Tully Marshall) shelters a clockmaker accused of witchcraft by the emperor. Years later, the village's sacred bell cracks and Quon is ordered to cast a new one. The metals, alas, refuse to mingle and Quon is sentenced to death. Just then, the Tartars attack and Quon is killed. Having promised to finish her father's project, Moy learns from the clockmaker that the metals will fuse only with the addition of human sacrifice. In the honor of her late father, Moy sacrifices herself. Playing the Tartar chief, Noah Beery headed a predominantly Asian supporting cast that included Jack Abbe as Moy's romantic interest, Chow Young as a lady of easy virtue, and Goro Kino as the emperor.
