The story revolves around three people — Lord Nicholas Dorset and his wife Britt, for whom luxury is a necessity, and their bank manager Mr. Graham. Over the years, Mr. Graham has devised a plan to rob his own bank. His clients’ desperate financial straits make them ideal accomplices in his eyes, but to ensure their loyalty he makes love to Britt after sending her husband away, then bribes Nick with a retainer.

The robbery scheme is dependent on timing and must be carried out on a Friday — the perfect Friday. With careful planning, the simple, neat crime is eventually accomplished. But each mistrusts the other, and with £300,000 at stake, the three robbers have a lot to lose.
