Winifred is seriously ill. Her mother and younger sister, Trixie, are distraught. The family doctor tells Winifred’s parents that she will die by the time the last leaf falls. Trixie takes these words literally; after the child is tucked into bed, she sneaks outside and starts tying fallen leaves back on branches with string.

Falling Leaves (1912) | dir. Alice Guy-Blaché
