John and Mary are having a quiet, boring evening at home, lamenting the absence of excitement in their lives. A stranger enters, followed by a Hero, a Heroine and a Villain. John and Mary then become embroiled in the suspenseful, life-and-death drama which ensues, a drama having something to do with a Rajah’s Ruby. Excitement abounds.
