Storyline

Rich young member of Parliament Simon De Gex, is wounded in the World War, has been told that he has only a few months to live. He gives a dinner party where he toasts death and gives up his seat and the larger part of his fortune to his friend, Dale Kynnersly, asking Dale to marry a girl in whom he is interested before he dies. Dale, however, is infatuated with Lola Brandt, a circus rider whose husband has disappeared. Dale takes Simon to watch her perform and sees her horse, Sultan, mysteriously shot dead. Lola and her friend, Midget, a clown, vow revenge. Simon becomes attracted to Lola and goes to Tangiers to find her husband. In a fight he is injured, and he is operated on and told that he will now live. Lola arrives, and Brandt confronts her and threatens to kill her when Simon interferes. Midget recognizes Brandt as the one who shot Sultan and kills him. A crowd attacks Midget, who dies from his wounds and Simon and Lola start life anew. Written by Pamela Short
