The story is based on a pulp novel called The Purple Mask, written by American writer Gouverneur Morris. It tells the tale of a romantic rivalry between two members of a secret society. Both of them are in love with Lilith, the only female member of the group.
She refuses to accept any of them, but changes her mind, when one of the rivals picks the “Ace of Hearts”, meaning he should carry out an assassination.
