The town is horrified to discover that their lawyer and the manager of the bank in which they had keep all of their incomes and savings have defrauded them and stolen all of their money. As poverty threatens to rear its ugly head once more, the neighbours must unite again to uncover their money is being stored before hatching a plan to recover what is rightfully theirs.
