One day, as she catches a glimpse of Richard Bedell, convent bred Eve de Merincourt falls madly in love, a love which must remain unrequited because her father's dire financial circumstances impel her to marry wealthy Henry Caron. Upon inheriting valuable patent rights from an old derelict that he has befriended, Bedell becomes wealthy and begins to lead a life of dissipation until he decides to seek refuge and reform on the uninhabited Trumpet Island. Meanwhile, Eve marries Caron; then, on their honeymoon flight, their plane is hit by lightning and downed. Caron falls into the sea and Eve is delivered, suffering from amnesia, to Trumpet Island where she once again encounters Bedell. Soon after, Caron, rescued by two beachcombers, comes to take Eve away but is killed in a fall from a cliff. The traumatic sight jars Eve's memory and, her mind once again whole, she and Bedell face a happy life together.
