When Harman hears of Fergessons impending retirement he tips him off to what he says is a cast-iron business proposition: a development in nearby Marin County with an opening for a garage. Al Miller is convinced that Harman is a crook, out to fleece Fergesson of his lifes savings. As much as he resents Fergesson he cant bear to see it happen and—denying to himself all the time what he is doing—he sets out to thwart Harman.
