~Plot Synopsis~
In 1910s melodramas, vamps either died for their sins or they reformed. In this picture, Louise
Glaum's bad girl reforms. Because she was betrayed as an innocent young girl, Honore Zonlay
(Glaum) nurses a hatred for all men. She victimizes every one who crosses her path, and when she
has the opportunity to meet General Gabriel Durand (Thomas Guise), the uncle of the man who
wronged her, Honore is thrilled because this is yet another opportunity to avenge the wrong he did
her. She works her wiles on Durand, who falls for her almost instantly and proposes. After they have
announced their engagement, Honore meets Paul Montaigne (Charles Gunn), who is bringing
Durand a dispatch. She falls in love for the first time in her life and begins meeting with Montaigne on
the sly, while pretending to be Durand's sister. When he proposes, she tells him her real identity, but
he loves her anyway. Durand, meanwhile, finds out about her past and this makes it easy for Honore
to split up with him. Montaigne becomes a spy for his country while it is at war, and Honore goes to
seek him out. She runs into Durand who tells her he has sent him out to certain death. Montaigne is
brought to the hospital, mortally wounded, and a chaplain is quickly called to marry him to Honore.
She desperately prays for his recovery and miraculously, he survives.
