Louise Bickford, a widow with three daughters, finds herself struggling against the insecurity and uncertainty of old age. Too proud to depend on her friends, too poor to manage for herself, she is dependent upon daughters who can spare from the complexities of their own lives neither time nor sympathy for her. In awkward embarrasement she lives with them in turn, her self-respect saved only by the devotion of her understanding and sympathetic grandchild, and the few friends that remain to her.
