In this silent drama, lifelong school chums Leo (John Gilbert) and Ulrich (Lars Hanson) are soldiers in the German army. Leo falls in love with Countess Felicitas (Greta Garbo) and courts her, which enrages her husband (Marc McDermott). When Leo fights a duel with and kills the Count, he is deployed to Africa for five years as punishment. Leo returns to find that Ulrich has fallen for Felicitas, but she resumes her amorous pursuit of Leo, thus pushing the limits of their friendship.

For the past twelve years, Richard Hughes has compiled many silent movie scores taken from authentic ‘mood music’ that was played during the 1920’s. This music enhanced the movie scenes by making them ‘come alive’ in the third dimension.
