A mysterious letter arrives one morning at the counting house of the wealthy money-lender, Mr. Andrews. His interest piqued, he sets off without delay for a remote country house, where a great sum of money hangs in the balance. A sum that Andrews will do just about anything to get his hands on. Upon arriving, however, his wish to increase the size of his fortune becomes lost in the hope of merely surviving the visit. Andrews will soon begin to uncover secrets about the house, and about himself, that he never could have imagined.
