SYNOPSIS

Dimitri and Louis, two wealthy friends enroute to Paris, stop at an inn where they see Rosette, a penniless beauty, dancing. Enthralled by her, the two men decide to take her to Paris with them, causing the inn's impoverished patrons to riot with outrage. Although Rosette favors Louis and spends the night with him, Louis informs her that he will never marry her. Remy, an employee of the inn, follows Rosette and, when he learns of Louis' cruelty, engages him in a fierce fight. Left to bleed, Louis is rescued by a priest and eventually enters the priesthood himself. One night, after Rosette has become a successful dancer at a gangsters' nightclub, Dimitri comes to see her show. By chance, Louis also shows up looking for a man whose wife is deathly ill. Later, the brothers fight with each other over Rosette, and Louis, the winner, convinces Rosette to become a nun. When World War I breaks out, Father Louis tries to rescue Rosette, now called Sister Rose Marie, from the Germans. Although Louis is mortally wounded in the attempt, he and Rosette are united by their pure and selfless ... +
