Tony's friend, Dr. Michael, also meets Ipatia and a love triangle begins. The story then moves to Piraeus where Ipatia lives with her spinster aunt. Meanwhile, Tony's father becomes ill and wants him to take over his shipping business. His father also wants him to marry an heiress, but Tony's heart is set on Ipatia.

The romance flourishes and just when he decides to ask her to marry him, they get into an accident, which separates them. Ipatia goes to America, not wanting to see him again.

Barely surviving the accident, it takes Tony years to recuperate. Years later, he searches for Ipatia in America, and their love is ultimately rekindled.
