Having become a cripple in childhood, Laura devotes most of her time to her collection of glass animal figurines, and the mother tries to find the right husband for her. To this end, Tom invites Jim O'Connor to dinner: he has Laura’s longtime love, she dreamed about him at school. However, it soon becomes clear that Jim is already engaged to another girl.
