The plot is based on a romantic Indian legend about the unhappy love of a brave warrior and a bayadere. Solor hunts tigers with friends in the sacred forest. He and the fakir Magedaveya lag behind the others to talk to the bayadere, the beautiful Nikiya. She is a bayadere (or otherwise, devadasi). So in South India they call girls dedicated to the deity and living at the temple all their lives. Love breaks out between Solor and Nikiya.
