So far as his fans were concerned, Milton Sills could have played a ballerina and still cashed in at the box office. In this adaptation of Lajos Biros' play Der Legioner, Sills is cast as French aristocrat Count Pierre Tonai, who after losing all of his money joins the Foreign Legion "to forget." While protecting French interests in the desert, Pierre falls in love with American beauty Vera Sherman (Natalie Kingston), and is loved by Viola Dana (Scadsza), daughter of Bedouin chieftain Kobal (William V. Mong). When his fort is threatened with extermination by Kobal's forces, Pierre orchestrates a reconciliation between the chief and his daughter. The day is saved, leaving Pierre free to wed Vera and return to Paris to start life anew.
