A strange coincidence leads Jack Clementi to an enormous art fraud. When he finds out that the art collection involved is the collection of Prince Rocaferro, which is ensured via the insurance company Jack works for, he is assigned to the case. Through Rocaferro, Jack meets the master forger Volterra, who tells him he can create statues good enough to fool the entire art establishment. Soon Jack finds himself with three statues, unsure which - if any - is real. He encounters Vasco, who appears to be the mastgermind behind the Prince's operation. It is revealed that the Prince's entire collection is fake.
