After learning about her background, Radha goes to England to claim her rightful inheritance from the estate of her late grandfather, who is also Raymond's uncle. Raymond is delighted to discover that his Hindu friend is really a white woman, and after dividing the estate with Radha, he brings the fortune back together by marrying her.Written by
A brown-faced Mary Pickford stretches her acting chops by playing an Indian child instead of an American one in this rather pointless silent. There are some mildly amusing scenes early on - particularly when Pickford falls into a sacred pool - but the plot is so wafer-thin that you have to wonder why they bothered.
