Early Danish silent films were often set in faraway and exotic places with characters usually drawn from the British upper classes. Presumably, the audience enjoyed seeing a world they knew little about, such as India, where part of this melodrama takes places. Danish matinee-idol Valdemar Psilander plays a British nobleman who, cut off from civilization, marries a Hindu princess (Mrs. Edith Psilander). Returning to his native land and, as a title explains, "once more associated with women of his own color and social standing," Cecil Brown finds himself "repulsed at the sight of his Hindu bride." The poor girl does not take the sudden turn of events in stride but attempts to poison her husband's erstwhile fiancee (Else Frølich). The attempt is unsuccessful and the Hindu girl flees to her death.
