Rich widow Mary Herries (Aline MacMahon) takes down-on-his-luck artist Henry Abbott (Basil Rathbone) into her home -- with possibly fatal consequences. What the kindhearted woman doesn't know is that Henry is really after her stash of world-famous paintings. Suspicions flare when Henry begins installing his crew of ne'er-do-wells in her house. When Mary finally puts her foot down, the men turn on her, and they transform her palatial home into a prison.
