Creditors were at their door and demanded money, claiming that even their home was mortgaged...

The sisters rummaged through all the drawers & shelves & found an important-looking Map in a black-box on their grandpa's study-table.

They checked out the Map, studying it carefully, trying to figure out the mystery treasure that was described.
