Story takes place in the Tower of London where gentleman scientist, Colonel Fairfax, is wrongly accused of sorcery and sentenced to death within the hour.

Fairfax hatches a plan to avoid letting his estate fall into the hands of his scheming cousin (also his accuser) by secretly marrying Elsie Maynard, a strolling singer.

She agrees to be blindfolded during the ceremony and expects to be a wealthy widow upon Fairfax’s imminent demise, free to marry her on-off partner, the jester, Jack Point.

However, Fairfax miraculously escapes his fate. Chaos ensues and plots unravel as Fairfax embarks on a campaign to win Elsie’s heart.
