    A middle-aged woman, who likes to entertain, had recently lost her spouse and thought that her life was worthless and she was useless. She had been putting mementos and photos in a scrapbox and album and reminiscing, when she had the idea to throw a party asking each guest to bring something old and nostalgic - a hankie, piece of jewelry, small tool, souvenir, button, playbill, or other small item. The idea was that each guest would have to tell the story behind the item.

    Three women and two men are linked in a mysterious circle of marriage, children, tragedy, blackmail, death, and unexplained events. What starts out to be a smooth romantic story, suddenly turns murderous and complex with many mysterious happenings: a baby dies one hour after birth - real cause unknown (until later); a woman is mistakenly pronounced dead; blackmail occurs; a rigged auto accident in which a child is mistakenly and severely injured occurs; a man is found dead - just to name a few.
