PlotEdit

As described in a film magazine,[2] after returning to London, Captain Deering (Tearle) of the British army finds that, during his absence from England, his fiancee Lady Fortescue (Mansfield) has jilted him for Lord Reggie (Brown). Stung with mortification, he accepts service in the Arabian desert and is attracted to a pretty young Arabian woman Laila (Howe), who nurses him through a fever when he becomes ill. Lady Fortescue has a change of heart and arrives as the desert camp while Captain Deering is absent. She tells Laila that she is Deering's wife. Laila leaves the camp and is attacked by a marauding band. Captain Deering and his troops rescue Laila, and there is a promise of continued happiness between them.
