"This one has the scent of Araby, the sparkle of champagne, the mist of distant moors."

At a time when people could still smoke in bars, a group of office workers meet for a drink. On a table sits an abandoned pack of cigarettes; there's no harm in lighting one, is there?

A disturbing, haunting tale about the dangers of tobacco.
