It's an ordinary afternoon for Gertrude when a new young caretaker comes to watch her while Gertrude's daughter runs some errands. She would rather be alone but she is persistently subjected to the mysterious harmonica-playing man, a little girl who comes by and the young caretaker who talk incessantly. She has no choice but to go along with things until things become clearer. Or do they?
