The young wife had not realised just how rich her husband was until she arrived at the lavish "bungalow" built by her husband's dead father.

In the courtyard lies a marble crypt, symbol of the influence the dead father holds over his servants, the plantation and his son.

The specter of her father-in-law, the distrustful caretaker, a cholera outbreak, the ever-present danger of the elephants, and the advances of the love-sick plantation foreman must all be overcome in order for the bride to become truly the "Mistress" of the plantation.
