THE STORY: Hilde, a young German refugee, works as a companion to Mrs. Price, a wealthy and beautiful invalid. Hilde’s fiancé, Paul, is a pianist, now employed at a bakery and practicing at night for what he hopes will be a great career. Hilde brings Paul and Mrs. Price together in the hope that Mrs. Price will take an interest in the young musician, and she does. But Hilde’s plans go awry as Mrs. Price’s interest in Paul grows to an extent beyond Hilde’s expectations. Mrs. Price, seemingly so charming and pitiful, harbors a dark past and a present plot which the young immigrant couple’s love and idealism may not be strong enough to withstand.
