Katherine, your standard naive country girl (Alice Hollister), is lured to the city by the worldly Diana (Anna Q. Nilsson). She falls for the even worldlier Mace (Harry Millarde), and thinks he returns her feelings until she's finally informed of his true character. Disillusioned and angry at this turn of events, she stabs him. Since she believes she has committed murder, she seeks refuge in a convent. While he recovers, Mace resolves to hunt Katherine down and kill her. He traces her to the convent where he finds her in prayer. He is moved by the sight and doesn't shoot her. When she realizes she isn't a murderess after all, Katherine believes that her prayers have been answered. The film apparently had two ends -- in one version she becomes a nun and remains at the convent. In the other, Mace repents, gives up his wicked ways, and marries Katherine.
