Timothy Timmony is the elderly, cultured proprietor of a book shop in a Sydney area that is being redeveloped. The bookstore is in the last building still standing. Simon Matthews, an uncultured but not insensitive adventurer, comes to the shop in pursuit of a particular volume at closing time. Just as Simon discovers that the book been sold to his arch enemy, the landlord locks he and Timmony in the building for the night. It soon becomes obvious that the book contains a code which identifies the whereabouts of an invaluable artifact. Through the night the two combatants anoeuvre for position. The revelation that the artifact is in the shop creates a climax that allows the two men to discover themselves through each other.
