It's December 23rd at the City and Colonial Bank, and the staff is preparing for their annual Christmas party. Harry Fordyce, the fastidious and exacting bank manager, welcomes in the bank's insurance company detective, Hepburn, to check out the security. It turns out, however, that Hepburn is not working for the bank, but robbing it, and he is holding Fordyce's family hostage. The bank employees become suspicious, but Fordyce, worrying about his family, doesn't want them to react.
