*"The 1 May 1926 Motion Picture News reported that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer changed the title from The Escape to Heaven on Earth.


Young Edmond Durand has been reared under the autocratic influence of his aunt, who directs a large silk mill in southern France. He revolts against a stifling career planned for him and leaves home with Marcelle, a Gypsy girl. They roam the countryside with a Gypsy caravan in romantic bliss; they are inadvertently separated but at the outbreak of war are reunited. When peace is restored, the lovers find happiness together."
