Ann, a 19-year-old girl who looks much younger, meets a dashing army major on a boat sailing from Liverpool to Bombay, India, and falls in love with him. Her love appears to be unrequited, though, because the major thinks she is far too young--and also, unknown to her, because he had once been in love with her mother. When a fellow passenger on the ship takes advantage of the naive girl the major comes to her rescue, but in the process the girl finds out about the past relationship between he and her mother.

Looking much younger than her nineteen years, Ann Church ( Lauar La Plante ) meets Major Seymour (Eugene O'Brien) on a boat sailing from Liverpool to Bombay. She soon falls in love with the handsome young military man and makes numerous innocent advances toward him, but he remains unmoved, deterred both by her youth and by the fact that he once was in love with her mother (Hedda Hopper). When Gilchrist (Jean Hersholt), another passenger, takes advantage of the girl's innocence and places her in a compromising position, Major Seymour, in an effort to save the girl's reputation, asks her to marry him. Ann accepts, but when they arrive in Bombay, Gilchrist tells Ann that Seymour had an affair with her mother, and Ann breaks off the engagement. Seymour then follows Gilchrist to his apartment and beats the cad. Ann prepares to return to England alone, and Seymour forces Gilchrist to tell the girl that his relationship with her mother was purely platonic. The lovers are reunited and are later married by the ship's captain on the high seas.
This 1925 drama was produced by Universal Pictures, starring the beautiful actress, Laura La Plante. Tragically it remains a lost silent film.
