It was made at the Nettlefold Studios in Walton-on-Thames, based on a play The Young Lady in Pink by Gertrude E. Jennings. The film's sets were designed by the art director Holmes Paul. It was the final film of Brunel, who had been a leading director during the silent era.


On the train back from her school to Paddington, an eighteen year old girl named Leonora loses her memory. This coincides with her father's decision, having just got his pilot's license to take her mother on a flight to Baghdad. Lost in a hotel in London, she is rescued by a young man who wants to help her. However his fiancée is extremely jealous, and arranges for a poor confidence trickster to pretend to be her mother in exchange for cash.
