[The following plot summary is based on the English-language version of this film, Scotland Yard ; character names refer to that version.] Dakin Barrolles, attempting to elude Scotland Yard detectives, swims to the houseboat of Sir John Lasher, who is forced at gunpoint to shield the thief. Attracted to Lasher's bride, Xandra, Dakin takes a locket containing the couple's bridal photograph; but traced to his hideout, he is forced to join the army to escape. Dakin is badly wounded in action in France, and his face is restored by a plastic surgeon to resemble the features of Lasher on the locket. Xandra, hearing that her husband has been lost in action, takes Dakin to be Sir John, and he returns to England with her and plans, with his former partner, Fox, to rob the Lasher banking concern. His growing love for Xandra, however, dilutes his baser motives; and when he is found out by a Scotland Yard detective, he gives himself up but is placed in the custody of his "wife's" love.

The onscreen credits were taken from a screen credit sheet in the Twentieth Century-Fox Records of the Legal Department in the UCLA Arts-Special Collections Library. This is the Spanish-language version of Fox's 1930 English-language release Scotland Yard, which was directed by William K. Howard and starred Edmund Lowe and Joan Bennett. This film was released in Santiago, Chile under the title La mujer del otro. Some sources indicate that Francisco Moré de la Torre was involved with the production, but it is not clear if he translated the dialogue into Spanish or if he supervised direction of the dialogue in Spanish. In 1941, Twentieth Century-Fox released another film entitled Scotland Yard, which was based on the play. It was directed by Norman Foster and starred Nancy Kelly, Edmund Gwenn and John Loder.
