It is New Year's Eve at Roy and Jean's house. Celebrating with them are Roy's close friends, Maurice and Eve, and Eve's wayward brother, David. Jean has decided that they will all play a board game, called "Nostalgia", and the questions are all about the 1960s.

Roy, Maurice and Eve, being some ten years older than Jean and David, have mixed feelings about the period in question. While playing the game, some very interesting memories come to light. Simmering resentments surface from the older age group about the fecklessness of those who were teenagers during the 60s, which only draws Jean and David closer together as they share their experiences of the "swinging scene".

The moral of the story is - beware of marrying a younger woman - especially one who yearns to recapture her youth!
