A widow emerges from her mourning after a year. She moves into a new apartment, gets a new job, and a gains a "gentleman caller" her late husband's partner and former best friend. Her daughter opposes the relationship and causes considerable confusion. As she tries to work out her problems, she confides in a fellow worker. The friend offers her a shoulder to cry on and ultimately suggests that they have a relationship. Surprised and more confused than ever, she does find herself drawn to her friend. Sada Thompson also appears as the woman's mother.
