In this melodrama, a middle-aged man is totally infatuated with his young and pretty next-door neighbor, and she is beginning to warm to him as well. However, any possibility of romance is thwarted by the return of the man's grown son, who sweeps the girl off her feet and into a marriage. It turns out that the boy has tuberculosis, however, and the bulk of the film deals with his protracted demise, which leaves everyone stunned, worn out, and nearly hopeless.
