The heartless sea sloshes relentlessly on Grandmother's house. She waits in vain for her greedy children to visit her. One by one she loses all her five senses, gradually becoming wooden until she finally turns into a chair. Rose, her thorny housekeeper tries to prevent this transformation. In the end, Grandmother discovers the human below the surface of the thorny beast and realizes that Rose is the family member she was always waiting for - but she's already a chair.
