Gentle ideologist Cheng Huan (Richard Barthelmess) migrates to England hoping to sow the seeds of Buddhism's pacifist canons. Instead, he ends up as an opium addict in London's seedy Limehouse district. Enter ethereal waif Lucy (Lillian Gish), who collapses at Huan's door thanks to another battering by her drunkard, pugilist father (Donald Crisp). As Huan nurses Lucy back to health, a tacit romance blooms … with tragic results.
