Directed by Raoul Walsh Written by Malcolm Stuart Boylan Dolores del Río as Tasia Charles Farrell as Grand Duke Eugene Ivan Linow as Ivan Petroff Boris Charsky as An agitator Dorothy Revier as Princess Varvara Andrés de Segurola as General Tanaroff Demetrius Alexis as Rasputin

Russia, just prior to the Bolshevik Revolution. The film focuses on the relationship between three characters: Tasia, a peasant girl; Grand Duke Eugene; and Ivan Petroff. Tasia has revolutionary sentiments, strengthened by witnessing the imprisonment of her father by czarist authorities. Her beauty attracts the attention of Ivan Petroff, but, to the relief of both of them, they escape a marriage arranged for them. While Bolsheviks stir up class hatred among Russia's populace, Tasia happens to meet Grand Duke Eugene, who genuinely wishes to address the empire's problems. They fall in love, though they know there is a huge social gulf between them. When the Bolsheviks stage an uprising, the three main characters are torn apart. Tasia becomes radicalized and is ordered by the Reds to assassinate a nobleman. Three guesses who her intended target is!
