~Plot Synopsis~
Bank cashier Eldred Caldwell and his wife, Louise, happily live on the edge of the desert until Richard
Manners reappears. He discredits Caldwell, who apparently commits suicide, and pursues Louise
into the desert. Manners dies, but Louise finds shelter with a sheik's widow. Years pass, and the end
of the World War sees England in search of Sheik El-Din (in reality, Eldred Caldwell) to reward him
for his bravery. He faints on receiving the decoration, and while recuperating he recognizes a nurse as
Louise. Though about to marry a doctor, she is reunited with her husband.
