Norma Talmadge stars as San San, a Chinese woman who falls in love with an American and is killed when the local war lord discovers she has had a baby. The baby is brought up in the household but made fun of as being "American." Talmadge also stars as the grown up daughter who falls in love with an American (Reid Hamilton) and is reunited with her father. Somber tale has good sets and decent makeup. Talmadge is good in the dual roles, and Thomas Meighan is also good, especially as the younger man. Most of the cast is buried under heavy makeup, but Talmadge and Meighan look good. The execution of San San is the highlight of the film.
