On the eve of her marriage to a prominent physician, wealthy young Nell (Madeline Renaud) elopes with charismatic young singer Zamor (Noel-Noel). Not only must Nell endure the hardships of constant travel from one concert date to the next, but she must also contend with the mercurial temperament of her egomaniacal husband. When she develops a pleasant singing voice of her own, it's too much for the husband, who promptly goes into a professional slump. With no money in the till, the young husband and wife make a suicide pact, but Nell is rescued by her former fiance, who has never stopped loving her. Mistigri was one of three French talkies directed back-to-back by American-born Harry Lachman.
