Zuma, a gypsy girl, and a snake charmer, is purchased by a kindly-hearted Count and his wife. Zuma drives from the Count's home a woman friend of the Countess who flirts with the Count, and then comes the revelation that the faithful gypsy girl herself nurses an all-consuming love for her master. At a reception in the Count's home Zuma does her snake dance for the amusement of the guests. When the dance is done Zuma turns the fangs of the giant python into her arm, a pathetic victim to her human love for the Count and her dog-like devotion to the Countess.
