John Huston's final film, an adaptation of a James Joyce novella, takes place at Christmas in turn-of-the-century Dublin. To mark the occasion, two spinsters (Helena Carroll and Cathleen Delany) throw a party, inviting, amongst others, their nephew Gabriel (Donal McCann) and his wife Gretta (Anjelica Huston). During the course of the evening, a haunting rendition of an Irish lament has an overwhelming effect on Gretta, who is moved to remember a long-suppressed romance in her earlier years.
