Then an employee reports she's been forwarding a large payroll to the company's Mojave Monarch Mine, trouble is the mine is "dry" and all the staff except the foreman were dismissed a year ago. Things really get strange when a woman claiming to be Amelia Corning, the company owner who resides in South America shows up. No one at the company is familiar with the distant owner but no matter, she disappears with two satchels full of the companies records pertaining to the Mojave Monarch Mine and then a 2nd Amelia Corning arrives.
