During the last half of the 19th century writer Richard Darrell (Stewart Gtanger) saves Don Carlor (Gerald Hinze) from two robbers, and is entrusted by Don Carlos to take a valuable necklace to Spain. Richard leaves his fiance, Oriana (Jean Crawford), and starts the trip. He meets Wycroft (Robert Helpmann), a henchman for Sir Francis Castteldow (Dennis Prince), an aristocrat out to steal Oriana from Richard. The latter is assaulted, robbed and nearly killed and, as a result, loses his memory. He marries a gypsy girl, Rosal (Jean Kent), while Oriana, thinking him dead marries the dastardly Sir Francis. Everybody will meet again. Complications will arise.
