Ann Eliza and Evelina Bunner are two unmarried sisters who own a small notions shop in a shabby section of New York City circa 1900. The older sister, Ann Eliza, buys a small clock for her sister's birthday from a tiny shop and meets the owner, a German immigrant named Herman Ramy. Once Mr. Ramy enters their lives, things begin to change in ways that neither sister could have imagined. What seems like a simple story is one of love, longing, selfishness, self-sacrifice, missed opportunities, and the unfairness of life for poor women, particularly those over 30 during this period.
