The German estate owner Corner travels to Marseilles, looking for his daughter.  He had a relationship with a French aristocrat before the World War and knows she was pregnant, when he had to return to Germany.  The War separated them however and the mother died giving birth to his child.  He knows neither the name of his daughter, nor where she is living.  A lawyer named Beauchamps is tasked with finding her and one days introduces a young singer named Isabel to him.  She is with great probability the one, who is being sought.  She follows her father back to Germany, but only with great reluctance. 
 
Der deutsche Gutsbesitzer Corner fährt nach Marseille, um seine Tochter zu suchen. Vor dem Weltkrieg hatte er ein Verhältnis mit einer französischen Aristokratin, die ein Kind von ihm erwartete. Doch durch den Krieg wurden sie getrennt, und die Mutter starb bei der Geburt des Kindes. Er weiß weder Name noch Wohnort der Tochter. Der mit den Nachforschungen beauftragte Rechtsanwalt Beauchamps stellt ihm eine junge Sängerin namens Isabell vor, die mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit die Gesuchte ist. Doch sie folgt ihrem Vater nur ungern nach Deutschland.
