Cast & Crew
Faith Merrill lives in the South Seas where she has been reared by her father Jim, a pearl-smuggling recluse who has kept his daughter completely innocent of the ways of the world. One day Faith finds Dion Holme, a sculptor who left England after a devastating love affair with Lady Cray, adrift on the beach, and brings him home. Under Faith's influence, Dion is regenerated; he begins sculpting again and returns to England, unaware of the girl's love for him. Upon her father's death, Faith follows Dion to London where he has become a famous sculptor. Lady Cray, jealous of Faith's youth and beauty, conceives a plan to destroy the girl by introducing her to a life of dissipation and drug use. Lady Cray's scheme works when at a banquet, Faith performs a risqué drug-induced dance that repulses Dion. After Lady Cray commits suicide, Faith, fearful that she will be suspected of murder, flees to the Limehouse District where she takes refuge in an opium den. Meanwhile, Dion, discovering that he loves the girl, rescues her, and they return together to the paradise of the South Seas.
