John and Joan Librey return home after a party on Christmas Eve to find two policemen and a young man, whom the police say was trying to rob them. The man claims he was trying to rescue a cat he heard crying, but the police do not believe him. John offers to pay his bail, but his motives are not as altruistic as they appear.
