'The film begins with the meeting of "Glory" with 'Lord Robert Ure"' and the "Hon. Francis Drake." Both men fall violently in love with her, and the former induces her to follow the stage as a profession. In the mean-time, "John Storm" has become a clergyman, and decides to devote himself to mission work in the slums of London. He entreats "Glory" to give up the idea of the stage, and go with him, but this she refuses to do. She goes to London and secures an appointment as a nurse, but after a time she resigns out of sympathy with another girl, who has been dismissed, through the influence of "Lord Robert Ure." Eventually she secures an appointment on the stage, and is present at a dinner party given in her honour by "Lord Robert." "John Storm" makes another endeavour to convince her to give up the stage, but this she again refuses to do. High words are exchanged between "Storm" and "Ure," and the deadly hatred of the latter crystailises into an attempt to get rid of "Storm." He pays an unscrupulous scoundrel to fire the mission hall, leaving "Storm" unconscious in the burning building, from which he is rescued in the nick of time. He goes to "Glory's" flat with the intention of killing her, his objective being the saving of her soul, but her passionate pleading awakens into fresh life the love that he has always had for her, and the film closes with both kneeling before a shrine and giving their lives to each other.'
