Synopsis by Janiss Garza
After Ned Hamilton (Pell Trenton) is rejected by his girlfriend, he travels to Japan where he hears an old legend about the Willow Tree Princess, who kills herself so that her lover will go off to battle. When he makes a purchase from Tomotada (Edward Connelly), an image maker, he meets his pretty daughter O-Riu (Viola Dana), and they recreate the events of the legend, except, this being Hollywood, there is a happy ending. The Willow Tree was adapted from a famous stage play by J.H. Benrimo and Harrison Rhodes.
