An independently wealthy collector of objets d'art tries to influence an artist's model away from marrying a notorious scoundrel and to help an Asian importer raise money for a son's surgery by buying a sacred statuette of Buddha, the sale of which the importer believes will curse him; therefore, the importer secretly plans to poison the collector after receiving the cash and keep the statuette in his possession. The titled "rescue squad" appears only briefly in the picture to help firemen rescue two principal characters from a stuck elevator in a building set afire by accident. There are no arsonists in this film.
