The scene is fin-de-si├Ęcle France, where the avaricious Tallendier brothers, Paul (Hurd Hatfield) and Henri (Philip Coolidge), have learned to their chagrin that their wealthy Aunt Rosalie (Mildred Natwick) intends to leave all her money to the church. To prevent her from changing her will, the brothers cook up a scheme to murder Aunt Rosalie, using ground glass as their weapon. Ultimately, Henri discovers that Rosalie has changed her mind -- but by this time, the murder plot has been carried out, with unanticipated results.
