Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this conventional drama, Victor is a graying older man (Denholm Elliott) who loses his apartment in a fire. The blaze was caused by his own carelessness while wantonly pursuing the married neighbor. Once he is interned in an old folks' home because he has nowhere else to live, Victor muddies the calm waters by tossing aside the home's more objectionable rules. He eventually starts a relationship with the chief officer in charge, but their differences, in the end, might prove too much to overcome at any age.
