October 1908: Almost like a bad whodunit, this is an odd, very disjointed story involving a series of thefts, miscommunications, mistaken identities, set-ups, betrayals, and cheating at cards.

He's brought his valet with him, a handsome and charismatic man named Torkel Kraft, who uses his charms to deceive Sarah into helping him with a theft he's planning. Captain Ryttsen, oblivious to Kraft's scheme, is only interested in one thing... the card game James has arranged for him. A turn of events during the last few disappointing minutes brings the show to a dissatisfying and abrupt end.
