An English society woman throws a party and invites all her guests to tell a story. The most fascinating is told by Helene (Marguerite Clark). It involves her past, as the daughter of a card shark (Frank Losee) who was forced to run away with Helene to Canada. He continues his illicit habits there, aided by Pierre, a half-breed (Elliot Dexter). They are constantly avoiding capture by soldiers, one of whom is Ralph (handsome Conway Tearle), who Helene loves. She's torn between her loyalty to her father and her romance with Ralph but eventually she marries him, in spite of Pierre's threats. After they wed, however, he leaves on a secret government mission and Helene never sees him again. That's how she ends the story at the party, but then another guest enters, Lord Traverse, and it just happens to be her long-lost husband.
