Osana escapes his advances only to enter the fight of her life once Kinard turns up dead. Since she was the last person to see him alive, Osana keeps her ordeal with Kinard a secret but little does she know blackmailer Max Ace has been watching her, and Kinard’s murder sets the stage for the crook to get his hands on Osana’s millions.
