Pierre Clemenceau ( William E. Shay ) an artist, visits the Parisian studio of his friend Constantin Ritz ( Stuart Holmes ) and falls in love with model Iza Dobronowska ( Theda Bara ). Iza ignores the artist, however, until she discovers that her mother Countess Dobronowska ( Mrs. Cecil Raleigh ) is making financial arrangements for her to marry wealthy Russian Duke Sergius ( Frank Goldsmith ). Iza accepts Pierre's proposal, and the two are married. Scorning her husband, Iza alienates Pierre's family and forms a romantic liaison with Sergius. Pierre learns of her betrayal and kills Sergius in a duel. Disillusioned, Pierre travels to America with Constantin and his new bride. Iza inherits a fortune from Sergius and also sails to America, where she entices Constantin into an adulterous affair. To save his friend's marriage, Pierre lures Iza to his apartment, stabs her to death and then reports his crime to the police.
This 1915 silent drama starring Theda Bara, is another one of the popular actresses many films that tragically remain lost.
