Through the open window of his compartment, the colonel overhears their private conversation on the station platform, and is intrigued. The mysterious woman - a self-confessed thief, carrying something she refers to as 'our treasure' - fears she is being followed. Who is after her? What is her secret? And is she a criminal or a victim?
