~Plot Synopsis~
Parisian music hall celebrity Mignon (Louise Glaum) marries young American civil engineer John
Stanley (Matt Moore). When John is suddenly assigned to undertake an engineering project in the
Sahara, Mignon accompanies him and her son (Pat Moore) to the desert, although she is
accustomed to a life of frivolity. After months of discontent, Mignon leaves her husband and son for
Russian Baron Alexis (Edwin Stevens), who establishes her in a palace in Cairo. John is
brokenhearted, and becomes a drug addict. Mignon later runs across her husband and son who have
become beggars. She is filled with remorse and goes back to the desert to nurse her husband. John
recovers slowly, reconciles with his wife, and the family finds happiness together.
