Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In an exaggerated, overacted portrayal of the lower classes being held down by a sometimes corruptible bureaucracy, an underprivileged woman on the verge of living on the streets gets a job in a home for seniors, where she begins her first tentative relationship with an orderly. When the orderly is denied an apartment after a five-year wait for housing, the woman approaches a wealthy invalid in the seniors home for a little help for her friend. Like many another wealthy senior, the man refuses to do what she wants -- with rather tragic results to himself, and ultimately to the woman as well.
