Before an inn in the mountains a Spanish danseuse does a wild turn. A brigand falls in love with her, and she pledges her troth. She then enters her chamber, where she is presently surprised by another suitor, who has heralded his coming by throwing into her window a bunch of roses containing a love letter. He falls upon his knees and implores her to marry him. But while he is pressing his suit, the brigand enters unawares, and immediately a jealous quarrel ensues. The two suitors repair to the fastnesses of the mountains, where the younger one is hurled over a precipice to his death. The smuggler then returns to the chamber of the danseuse to claim her. When she learns of his brutal crime she refuses him. In his disappointment he stabs himself. She rushes to his prostrate body and grabs his blood-stained hands. She leaps back in horror while examining her own bands reddened by her touch. A thrilling episode in the style of Bizet's "Carmen."
