A woman meets up with the lover she refused when he returns home before moving permanently to America. The circumstances surrounding her refusal are not what they seemed and the two take advantage of the misfortune of another lady to save the heroine from hanging. Not an original plot and the hero and heroine don't have really great romantic chemistry.
