A aristocratic lieutenant is forced to resign his commission and give up his career in the cavalry after having defended himself against deliberate provocations by a superior officer who is competing with him for the love of the daughter of a respected privy councillor. His family bans him to New York, where he falls on hard times until a former circus performer helps him to become a world-renowned trapeze and aerial artiste.
