The streets of Niles, IL, were converted into an unnamed foreign country in this Essanay one-reeler. A young American businessman inadvertently becomes embroiled with a plot to overthrow the King. Accused of subversive activities, the American hero is arrested and sentenced to death. The American consul demands a fair trial, but no one listens. Finally the "hand of Uncle Sam" manifests itself in the form of a Marine torpedo boat. After this ostentatious show of force, the American is released and the foreign army neatly dispersed.
