Feyda, a Russian wastrel, wins the love of Lisa from his friend Victor, and their marriage produces a child; but Feyda, tiring of the routine of domestic bliss, returns to his old haunts for gambling and drinking. He becomes estranged from his wife and takes up with his former Gypsy sweetheart, Masha. Thinking her husband has been drowned, Lisa marries Victor; but later, investigations ensue from a bigamy charge against her; realizing he is destroying the lives of his wife and his best friend, Feyda remorsefully shoots himself.
