Abstract:

Hester Madgwick, daughter of an English nobleman, was kidnapped as a baby, and consecrated to the service of a heathen god in India. Years later, Hester is sent by the Indian seditionists to recover a sacred ruby which had come into the possession of her father at the time of her kidnapping. Hester forgets her mission after falling in love with Dennis, her father's estate manager, and wishes to be released from the service of the god. Sir Madgwick dies, apparently of heart failure, and Hester is named chief beneficiary of his will. When Hester's drunken half-brother Eric has a friend break into his father's coffin to obtain the sacred ruby which was buried with him, the friend remarks that Sir Madgwick was poisoned. Suspicion points to Hester who is being held captive by the Indian Karaji. Hester makes a daring escape from a window, and returns to prove her innocence. Scotland Yard rounds up the seditionists, and the servant Ali reveals that Madgwick feared being buried alive, so he had Ali promise to put a vial of poison in his coffin. As the film ends, Dennis and Hester embrace. Set in India and England.
