In Scotland, a young knight, Lochinvar, insists on marrying Ellen, the woman he loves although she is betrothed to another. Undaunted, Lochinvar seeks Ellen at her wedding at Netherby Hall, to save her from a forced marriage. Asking first for a dance, he sweeps her off her feet onto his horse and rides away with her.
