Description:00 12 20 00 United States, 1910s. Doris May, dressed in a coat, urges Hallam Cooley to go out for tea. In doing so, she disturbs her father, Otis Harlan, who was talking to Cooley. Both men are bothered. Doris drags Cooley away, and they climb into their car and drive off. Cooley drives, wearing a straw hat; he seems gloomy, worried, preoccupied. She asks him what's wrong. In turn, he asks her to explain her actions of the day before. She defends herself and gives her arguments, proof, explanations. She was taken by force by the bandits, the burglars. The two make a pact to find the thieves. Partnership between May and Cooley. Meanwhile, Otis Harlan, a small pot-bellied man, leaves his house and climbs into his car.
