— A woman finds a batch of old postcards addressed to a Fannie Sue Wilson and sets out to find her. Wilson is found - buried in a Yanceyville graveyard. So the woman tracks down Wilson's nearest relative – a second cousin – and delivers the postcards to him.

The postcards are simple – the messages are about everyday life – but taken together they paint a picture of life lived a generation ago.
