Doors Open Summary
Three friends descend upon an art auction in search of some excitement. Mike Mackenzie - retired software mogul, bachelor and fine art enthusiast - wants something that money can't buy. Fellow art-lover Allan Cruickshank is bored with his banking career and burdened by a painful divorce. And Robert Gissing, an art professor, is frustrated that so many paintings stay hidden in corporate boardrooms, safes and private apartments. After the auction - and a chance encounter with crime boss Chib Calloway - Robert and Allan suggest the "liberation" of several paintings from the National Gallery, hoping Mike will dissuade them. Instead, he hopes they are serious.
