Based upon a summary in a film publication, Ah Wing (Warren) saves a white child during the Boxer Rebellion and raises her as Chinese in America as Sui Sen (Joy). Ling Jo (Beery), a tong leader and slave trader, desires Sui Sen and enters a marriage contract with Ah Wing where he will search and give the Scepter of the Mings to Ah Wing in return for the girl. Ah Wing agrees because he does not believe that the scepter can be recovered, but when it is produced, he, while heartbroken, must keep his word. The wedding day is set and Ling Jo wants Sui Sen even after being told that she is white. Robert Newcomb (Glendon), a curio collector who has fallen in love with Sui Sen, and with the help of a young Chinese man called "The Worm" (Abbe), who also loves her, rescues her from the tong chief.
