A nostalgic look is taken at an abandoned one-room school somewhere in rural America, seen in the then-present day with its windows boarded up and in disrepair. In flashback, a day in the life of its teacher, the spinster Miss Turlock, is seen, along with various students.
The end of the film shows the school's eventual closure, brought on by improvements in transportation and the rise of central school districts. Miss Turlock's students, now all successful adults, return to the school before its closure to throw a retirement party for Miss Turlock.
