Annie, an estate supervisor's daughter, does not initially reciprocate Joppan's feelings, but Joppan attains her love by saving her younger brother's life. Their love becomes the talk of the town and Joppan's father reprimands him. Joppan renounces his family and locals, except Annie, and assures her that he will return for her after becoming an affluent man.
