 Plot: When a man selects a mail order bride, he is surprised to see the beauty who appears before him. She alleges that she sent false photos to him to assure that he would love her for what she is and not for her beauty.

What she does not expect is that she falls in love with her new husband and ultimately must decide between him and her sadistic former lover.
