After recently quitting his job, Sharky returns to Dublin to take care of his brother, Richard. The tension between brothers is obvioussince the beginning and is enhanced by the appearance of Sharky's rival, Nicky Giblin, who along with his friend Ivan joins for a poker game.

Nicky Giblin arrives with the mysterious Mr. Lockhart, a refined-looking man. During a tête-à-tête, Lockhart reminds Sharky of their previous encounter, which took place twenty-five years ago, when Sharky agreed to a card game in which he put his soul at stake into a poker game against Lockhart, in an attempt to win his freedom. Sharky won the game with him as well, but provided that Lockhart would play it again.

The play culminates with the game played between the five men, apparently a harmless card game, but that is actually a game for Sharky's soul, as Lockhart reveals, in a series of Sharky's personal disclosures, that he is a Mephistophelian entity. Sharky defeats his opponent once more when, at the climax, Ivan reveals his winning hand of four aces, which he had mistakenly achieved because of his myopia.
