Corinne La Force, who is half-black, as her father had been shipwrecked on a West Indian island colonized by blacks, is raised by Henry Hasbrook after her father's death. Corinne loves Hasbrook's nephew, Arnold Curtis, and murders Hasbrook when he tries, because of her mixed blood, to prevent the match. Marcia Fleming, a married woman with whom Arnold was having an affair, and her mother-in-law are suspects, although Arnold is arrested for the murder. John Fleming, hired to defend Arnold, renounces his wife when he learns of her involvement with Arnold. Just as Arnold is about to confess to the crime in hopes of saving Marcia's reputation, Corinne admits her guilt and stabs herself. Fleming decides to pay more attention to Marcia, and the two are reconciled.
