Percy Ashfield is on the verge of marrying Mary Bowman, but her father strongly opposes the union. As they gather at Ashfield's castle to celebrate, an unexpected turn of events unfolds: a young woman bursts in, claiming that Percy is the father of her child. A doctor corroborates her story, alleging that she is mentally unstable due to Percy's supposed infidelity. This revelation shocks everyone present, especially Percy, who has no recollection of the woman. Amidst the ensuing confusion, Percy realizes that both the woman and Mary's pearls have mysteriously vanished, leaving him perplexed.
