An elderly woman spends her time reminiscing about her travels as a youth with her diplomat father. She keeps to herself and plays old 78 records as her neighbors quietly tolerate her eccentricities. A dying invalid neighbor knocks on her door one day, and the lonely old woman takes care of the man until he dies. She is approached after the man's funeral by people who covet her two-room apartment and suggest she switch living quarters. When she inquires about changing her residence, an impromptu open house turns into a party. Initially delighted, the woman soon is fearful of the intentions of the strangers. After asking them all to leave, she contemplates a move to a quiet country setting.
