Florence LaBadie plays a angelic young convent girl whose guardian dies. She's left in the care of her guardian's secretary who, through his evil influence, turns her into a violent, mean-tempered she-demon. She makes everyone around her miserable until a doctor who once knew her (Wayne Avery) comes back into his life. The doctor himself has a talent for hypnosis that rivals the secretary's. They fight for the girl's will, and the doctor is victorious while the Mephisto-like secretary crawls off and ends it all. The girl returns to the convent in shame, but the doctor entices her back out with a proposal of marriage. Even when it was released in the 1910s this picture was considered a hoot.
