In this complex romantic drama set in the Middle East, a German baroness goes there for a visit and ends up falling in love with a French military officer. Her husband is equally adulterous and endeavors to catch her with her lover to insure that he will have custody of the heir after their divorce. Before his scheme plays itself out, the Frenchman intervenes and kills him. To protect the baroness, he then disposes of the evidence the husband gathered against her. Unhappiness eventually ensues.
