Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
After Lillias, a pretty but self-serving woman, accidently kills the dog of a gypsy woman, the gypsy puts an evil spell on her. Later, when Lillias dumps her latest lover Hugo, he goes off to join the gypsy's touring circus, and he ends up falling in love with the gypsy. After the couple has set a wedding date, they run into Lillias in London, and she invents a scheme to win back the heart of Hugo by destroying the reputation of the gypsy woman. Though Lillias's plot does indeed drive the two lovers apart, ultimately she fails to bring Hugo back into her own arms and, in defeat, Lillias finds a rich American to marry and eventually has a child with him. But when her daughter is stricken with a near-fatal illness, the gypsy woman is the only one who can save her, and she promises to help if Lillias admits to her deceitful ways. Lillias complies, and Hugo and his true love are brought back together once and for all.
