Flora, 72, is a spinster in a small town who is frightened that her nieces will try to put her in a nursing home. This impending threat eventually forces Flora to hire Purita, a live-in housekeeper. Purita is quick to build a close relationship with the lonely woman, and is soon considered by Flora to be the only family she has left. Flora decides to make Purita heir to her possessions. This causes serious gossip in the small town and irks Flora’s nieces, who had hoped to inherit their aunt’s fortune.
