A French army doctor is sentenced to life imprisonment on Devil's Island, leaving his fiancée with the burden of choosing whether or not to marry him after a mandatory seven-year wait─since doing so would condemn her and any children to the same doom of lifetime captivity. She chooses to wed, and after her husband dies and their son grows to adulthood, begins to plan an escape. Romantic silent stars Richard Tucker, Marian Nixon, and Pauline Frederick. 75 min. Standard; Soundtrack: music score. Silent with music score.
