Robert Wells (Moore) is an American born in China who, unbeknownst to him, has an Oriental half-brother (also Moore). Wells' uncle sends him to help Ray Williams (Robert McKim) build bridges in China. Williams is in league with Chinese reactionaries and he discredits Wells by turning him into a drug addict. Wells eventually becomes an outcast and is in a stupor when he is found by his half-brother, Kong Sue, the son of the Lord of Thundergate, a powerful Mandarin reactionary (Tully Marshall).
