Captain King of the British Army's Black Watch regiment is assigned to a secret mission in India just as his company is called to France at the outbreak of war; as a result, he is considered a coward by his fellows, a suspicion confirmed by his becoming involved in a drunken brawl in India, in which he apparently kills another officer. But he contrives to avert a revolt by gaining the affection of Yasmani, a girl who is looked upon by tribesmen as their goddess and who is to lead them to victory against unbelievers. He quells the rebellion when the tribesmen, angered by her support of King, kill Yasmani.
