They have traced the location of the mysterious doll, which contains fortune in diamonds, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that something inside the doll is wanted by the crooks. The crooks convince Susy that the police have implicated her husband, Sam, in the murder of the doll’s owner. Susy refuses to reveal the doll’s location, and with the help of, GLoria, a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. Roat kills his associates, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between the two. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls she turns off all the lights leaving both of them to maneuver in her darken world until the game ends.
