Walking aimlessly in the desert, crazed by thirst and hunger, Lucy Mannister and Gaston Sinclair are overtaken by her husband George, who has pursued them around the world. Threatening to shoot them, George extracts a confession from Sinclair, once George's friend, that a group of George's Wall Street associates had conspired to ruin him. They made it appear to Lucy that George was having an affair with the notorious Sylvia De La Mere. After Lucy saw Sylvia embrace George, she despaired and left with Sinclair, who said he loved her. George lets them live, and he returns to New York, where, with the help of Sylvia, who now loves him, George terrorizes the group. One by one he leads them, and then Sylvia, to either financial ruin, disgrace, or death. When George learns that Lucy is no longer traveling with Sinclair, and that she has never even kissed him, he locates her, forgives her, and takes her back.
