For some reason, unexplained, they have fallen in with two people from the town, Isolde ("nearing 30 and not yet spoken for") and her brother, "D," just out of high school and known as "The Captain of the Football Team" (his parents call him Donnie), to commit the perfect crime, a metaphor for something philosophical: in this case, to remove a sizable amount of money from The Bank for one day (one day only) and "let the whole world know that it was missing."
