Marooned on a rubber plantation in the East Indies, Leslie Crosbie turns to Geoffrey Hammond for the love and diversion that she does not find with her husband. Hammond falls in love with a Chinese woman, however, and Leslie shoots him dead. Placed on trial for her life, Leslie convinces both the jury and her husband that she killed Hammond in defense of her honor. The Chinese woman has an incriminating letter written by Leslie to Hammond, however, and Leslie must pay to recover it. Her husband foots the bill, and Leslie is faced with a bankrupt and loveless future.
