Un riche collectionneur japonais propose a Edith, dame du grand monde, de lui donner l’argent qu’elle a detourne, produit d’une vente de charite, a l’unique condition qu’elle se donne a lui. Malgre sa repugnance, Edith accepte. Mais elle regagne au jeu la somme escroquee… Ce film est un remake du film de Cecil B. De Mille “The Cheat” et un de ces grands succes qui deciderent plusieurs cineastes en herbe francais a se lancer definitivement dans la carriere cinematographique.

Whilst her husband, the engineer Pierre Moret, is engaged on construction projects, Denise occupies herself with charity work in the Chinese town that has become her home. Tempted into a gambling den, she soon loses a fortune. She has no recourse but to accept a gift of money from the wealthy Prince Hu-Long, who has fallen in love with her. Realising that she cannot accept such a gift, Denise returns the money to the prince, not realising that by taking the money she has become his property…
