A Russian general's wife is killed by a jealous mistress at the apartment of a lieutenant. The general provokes a duel with the junior officer, but with the approach of the 1914 war the duel is deferred as both officers are needed with their regiments. Twenty years later in Paris, the general comes across and shoots the former lieutenant whom he injures; the truth about his wife then emerges.
