This tale of reincarnation begins during Medieval days, when Sir Errol, a knight (E. Forrest Taylor) becomes the object of lust for the wife (Eugenie Forde) of his lord, Baron Edward. But Sir Errol is already promised to Maud, a lady-in-waiting (Helene Rosson). The Baron's wife banishes Maud from the castle and plots to get her husband out of the way. Maud hears about the scheme to kill the Baron and when she goes to warn him she is accidentally killed by Sir Errol's own sword. When he discovers what he has done, Sir Errol swears to right his wrong if it takes him a thousand years. So a few dozen lifetimes later he is Thomas Eric (Taylor), a young engineer who is working for Pierpont Carewe. Eric is engaged to Joan Long (Rosson), but Carewe's wife, Frieda (Forde), wants him for herself. She sends Joan and her father off to Bermuda and tries to use a stock manipulation to both ruin her husband and get Eric under her power. But Joan returns early and Eric remembers the events of a millennium ago. Frieda's plot is foiled and Eric is reunited with Joan.
