Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
A boy is staying with his grandfather while his expectant mother - pregnant by her lover - is seeking a divorce. Although the grandfather has a pleasant house, there is an oddball living upstairs who stomps around and telephones the grandfather at all times of the night. When the grandfather dies, the mother has her sister go to the house to take care of the little boy, not knowing that the two of them do not get along. Eventually, the boy becomes sick - when his aunt is gone, the eccentric starts in on him as he had on the grandfather and the whole experience is too much. His sickness bridges the gap between himself and his aunt, and as they are adjusting to this new relationship, the boy's father comes to the house with obvious designs on the aunt and sure enough, the two spend the night together, apparently because of a long-standing mutual attraction. Almost immediately, the father has to leave again, and his relationship with the aunt is contrasted to that of her ex-husband, who also shows up but just to demand money from her. After these characters have come and gone from the house, the boy's pregnant mother arrives with her new boyfriend - bringing yet another change.
