At the turn of the 20th century, a jilted French artist becomes a vagabond and falls in love with an orphan girl

In London at the turn of the century, Gaston du Nerac is due to marry his fiancée, Joanna.

When her father finds himself in financial trouble, Gaston reluctantly accepts help from a rival – on condition that he never sees Joanna again.
