In a Provincetown garden, Ian Joyce, having just finished calibrating the sun dial he has constructed, zealously convinces his wife Eloise to abandon their reliance on modern time keeping by burying all the clocks they own in their garden. Although tentatively on board, Eloise grows more and more conflicted over this decision as she realizes the impact it will have upon their lifestyle. Their actions confuse Mrs. Stubbs, their working class neighbor, frustrate their cook Annie, who must now time her food preparation by sun dial, and anger dinner guests Eddy and Alice Knight, when they discover that the cuckoo clock they had given their friends as a wedding gift has also been interred.
