The story focuses on a sinister con man who coerces two ex-convicts into helping him trick Susy, a blind housewife who unwittingly possesses a doll filled with illicit drugs. But Susy and a young girl upstairs launch a counterplot against the thieves. The drama plays on the themes of darkness and light as Susy navigates through her sightless world matching wits against evil.
