Silent movie audiences must have had an insatiable appetite for mythical kingdoms because it seems like just about anything written by George Barr McCutcheon reached the silver screen. McCutcheon's mythical kingdom in this particular tale is called Japat. Hollingsworth Chase (J. Warren Kerrigan) is the American representative for the British law firm, Brodney's. He travels to Japat where a revolution. Chase meets up with the kingdom's prince and princess, who must marry or relinquish the kingdom to the natives. Before the evening is out he has begun a flirtation with Princess Genevra (Alice Calhoun) and battled with the prince. He is forced to flee to an island retreat where he once again meets up with the princess. Chase winds up being won over to the side of the royals (during the silent era, white people were never seen as villains) and has to rescue Genevra from a group of angry natives. She relinquishes her throne to be with the heroic Chase.
