Based on Marie Corelli's novel, Countess Romani tires of her hum-drum existence and wants to return to civilisation from Corsica. She falls in love with George Ferrat, then discovers her husband has apparently drowned in a shipwreck. He subsequently turns up alive, but is shot by his wife's lover. He recovers, being nursed by Maria Ferrat who is in love with him, and pursues a vendetta against his wife and George.

The Countess has tired of George, and is shot during a struggle with her husband and her new lover. Romani is tried and looks guilty until Maria's brother George confesses and then shoots himself, leaving Maria and the Count to find happiness together.
