When Chinese immigrant Cheng Huan (Richard Barthelmess) moves to London to spread Buddhism, he is unprepared for the deplorable conditions and intolerance of its inner city. But Huan succumbs to his environment; his missionary dream turns into indifference and opium addiction, until he finds battered Lucy Burrows (Lillian Gish) at his doorstep. He devotes himself to her recovery, and the two kindred souls become close, but tragedy awaits in the form of Burrows’ abusive father (Donald Crisp).
