Tito (Powell) forgets his promise to use jewels that weren't his to pay a ransom. He marries Romola (Lillian Gish) and rises to position of chief magistrate. He becomes very unpopular with the people by his constant bad conduct. He sells Romola's father's sacred books, enters into a mock marriage with Tessa (Dorothy Gish) and condemns to death a champion of the people (Grimwood). This all round bad character finally gets what's coming to him in a great finish. One of the few surviving films of Dorothy Gish.
