Popular action heroine Neva Gerber played the dual roles of Lucia and Vera Robilant in this low-budget silent melodrama produced by Benjamin F. Wilson, Gerber's frequent collaborator. Two almost identical women claim ownership to a pocketbook found by author turned adventurer Barry West (James Morrison). Barry is hired by nefarious Nicholas Lanza (Joseph W. Girard) to marry heiress Lucia, who surprisingly turns out to be one of the claimants. Meanwhile, Lucia's lookalike sister Vera is plotting to install herself as Lucia and claim the inheritance. After the wedding, Barry discovers a secret passage and finds the kidnapped Lucia. The villains are brought to justice and Barry and Lucia can finally plan a future together.
