After a ship-board romance with a married woman, Jack Pansay, a self-interested Englishman, rejects her. As the woman stubbornly denies that she has been rejected, Pansay treats her cruelly. When he becomes engaged to a young woman, his former lover dies of a broken heart. Shortly thereafter, Pansay begins to see her as he had in her final days: passing through the streets in her rickshaw drawn by four Indian brothers.
