While in India, Rosamond English ( Elsie Ferguson ) learns that her husband Capt. Harry English ( Wyndham Standing ) has been killed in battle. After a time, she marries Sir Arthur Gerardine ( Clarence Handyside ) but is unable to forget her first husband, and gradually her love for him is rekindled, especially when she contrasts him to the pompous and elderly Sir Arthur. Rosamond returns to England to assist Lieut. Belhune ( Percy Marmont )in writing a biography of Capt. English, however, this only serves to increase her mental anguish. When Sir Arthur arrives with his Indian servant, he notices a decline in his wife's condition. After spending a day reading the captain's diary, in which he remarked that food and water were scarce, she comes to the dinner table terribly distracted. The sight of the plentiful supply of food and water makes her hysterical, and she is confined to her bed. In her delirium, Rosamond requests that the Indian servant pray for Capt. Harry's return, and the prayer is answered when the servant reveals himself to be the Captain in disguise. Rosamond is healed and Sir Arthur departs.
This intriguing drama was based on the novels of Agnes and Egerton Castle and filmed by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Artcraft Pictures. It was directed by French film director and screenwriter, Maurice Tourneur and starred the beautiful stage and film actress, Elsie Ferguson. The loss of this film is a tragic one for fans of silent cinema.
