A rich entrepreneur commits suicide and so a doctor visits his widow. Because they had once been engaged, she tells him about a safe where jewels are hidden. She wants to keep her pearls from the police because she doesn't want to pay her husband's business debts. That night her husband comes to her room telling her he had faked his death. He opens the safe and gives her the pearls. Suddenly a thief enters and takes everything, laughingly explaining that her maid was his accomplice.
