The army of a Polish prince attacks a Moldavian fortress. The defenders send young Ioana with a peace message for the prince. He is attracted to her beauty, although he had promised faith to princess Iagusia. Seeing that the negotiations are useless and Ioana is held prisoner, a group of soldiers from the fortress rescues her and take the traitor captain Ghindă and princess Iagusia as hostages. While Ioana falls in love with the traitor captain, the Polish princess falls in love with Ion, one of the defenders. Ghindă gets caught while trying to escape and Ioana, realizing his perfidy, kills him. The Polish resume their attacks. Ion dies in battle and princess Iagusia leaves the fortress, her heart grieving over the death of her beloved.
