Lovely, independent and young, Kate Holborn lives comfortably in an elegant house on the edge of town. She leads a quiet life, interrupted only occasionally by two girl friends who have faithfully stood by her through youth, marriage and widowhood. One day, Kate passes by the display cabinet of a leading photographer in town and is captivated by the portrait of a handsome young man. She takes the photograph home, little knowing that it will introduce terror and turmoil into her life. The young man in the portrait that so impressed her is none other than a dangerous and conniving thief, Jack Morton, the most fearless and audacious bandit any city has ever hatched.
