As an adult, he's unable to satisfy his refined tastes -- until he meets a glamorous, rich American girl named Linda, who acts against her father's wishes to marry David. When her father threatens to take away her inheritance, however, she asks for a divorce, thereby rattling David's comfort within San Francisco's high society. Refusing to sacrifice the lifestyle to which he has become accustomed, David plans the perfect crime: to murder his wife and fake a kidnapping to collect the ransom.
