Irene Falliday is the daughter of the British governor who rules over an Indian province. She loses a shawl and finds Yasmini wearing it and asks Tommy Farrell to get it back. Farrell is in love with Irene, but Yasmini loves him, and when he finally gets the shawl from her, the circumstances shame her in the eyes of her father Shere Ali, Sirdar of the Afghans, and his subjects. In revenge, Shere Ali kidnaps Irene.

Irene's long time secret admirer, Major Bruce Wainright, goes to rescue her with the aid of his horse, "The White Panther."
