Get Claire's "cousin" out of New Orleans before the wedding, Giraud tells the sea captain and the debt will be paid.

  • In 1841 New Orleans, beautiful adventuress Claire Ledoux schemes to marry wealthy banker Giraud; but in the intervals, she sees no harm in dalliance with poor but handsome sea captain Robert Latour. Her plots have ups and downs, become more involved, and, naturally, backfire.
