To save his friend's life, Casey hands over the negatives, expecting that to be the end of it. He's wrong. A stockbroker named Donald Farrington spent the night at the same bar, getting into a different kind of trouble, the sort that ends with him being photographed in a hotel room with a woman who isn't his wife.
