A man appears to be being tricked out of a valuable piece of land in Canada which contains lucrative silver deposits by his wife's lover. Both the potential villains begin to have second thoughts when gradually come to suspect that their intended victim, having since changed his name, is in fact a notorious killer from Canada. Eventually it transpires he was not the murderer, but is only using it as a trick to push his wife and her lover to reveal their deception out of fear.
