Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Basil North (George Howard) is an American consul working in Brazil. He runs afoul of a trio of smugglers who are trying to illegally obtain passports. When North refuses a passport for one of them, Burke (George MacQuarrie), the gang attempts to exact revenge by involving North's wife, Erminie (Corinne Griffith), in a scandal. Erminie, however, proves to be resourceful enough to get herself out of the jam. Burke, in fact, winds up helping her, to his detriment. In the end the villains all get their due, and North is none the wiser about any of the troubles his wife has gone through.
