In this drama, an jewel thief is let out of prison and heads for a New York hotel to find the jewels he hid in the fireplace before he was caught. He must hurry as the building is about to be razed. Unfortunately, the room in which he hid them is occupied and he must stay in the adjoining suite. Every try he makes to get into the room is foiled. Eventually the police, who have been patiently awaiting his return, bust in and catch him in the act of retrieving the purloined gems.
