Sessue Hayakawa plays Akbar Kahn, a Persian writer who lives in New York's Greenwich Village. Kahn cooly uses Indora (Colleen Moore) to provide fodder for his stories without realizing how cruel he is being. A sociology student, Virginia Crosby (Rhea Mitchell), sees the whole situation and goes to work on Kahn to give him material for his next work -- a romance that involves stolen talismans and a cult of devil worshippers. It's all a thinly veiled reference to Kahn's rocky romance with Indora, and in the end, Virginia reunites the pair with a fresh understanding.
