A young British officer, recently engaged, learns that his regiment is about to ship out to the Sudan. Nervous about the mission, he abruptly resigns his commission, to the dismay of his father and others. Perceiving his actions as an act of cowardice, his finacee and three friends each give him a white feather, to symbolize his lack of courage. Distraught and broken, the officer goes into hiding, but when he learns that his best friend and the men he once led have come under siege, he embarks on a perilous journey to rescue them. Despite overwhelming odds and a distinct lack of proper equipment, the young officer stages a daring rescue, puts aside the selfishness which once ruled his life and finds a way to regain the favor he had lost.
