Plot

As described in a film magazine, Joan (Normand), an orphan, becomes interested in the drilling of soldiers at an American World War I training camp near the orphan asylum of which she is an inmate. One day while evading the angry superintendent, she conceals herself in a cellar and discovers a meeting place of German spies who are plotting. She believes that, like a modern day Joan of Arc, she's listening to disembodied voices. She reports the matter to the major, who sets out to capture the spies and sends Joan to live with his mother. When he returns from the war, he finds Joan waiting for him.
