Stage star and sometime film actress Nance O'Neil stars in this drama, which was made by the Stage Women's War Relief for Universal Studios. O'Neil plays a Russian peasant girl who, against the wishes of her parents, weds a nobleman (Alfred Hickman, who was briefly O'Neil's husband in real life). The fears of the girl's parents are confirmed when she has a son and the nobleman takes the baby away to raise it in luxury. Over the course of two years, the peasant girl searches for her now-hated husband, vowing to kill him when she does. Because of her rabid determination and her grief, she becomes known as the "mad woman." In spite of the ferocity of her feelings, when she finally does track down the nobleman, she does not kill him. He offers to return the boy to her, and the couple are reconciled. In addition to O'Neil and Hickman, Tyrone Power Sr. -- the father of screen idol Tyrone Power -- also has a significant role.
