The romance and adventure story has the virtuous Lord Carew and the good-for-nothing Lord Geradine competing for the attentions of the virtuous Marny and the good-for-nothing Lady Carew, all set in the exotic desert sands of Algeria. The setting and story are completely typical of the desert-romance genre novelist Edith Maude Hull invented and specialized in. This film is now lost.[1][2]
