Synopsis: "None Before Me" is about a miserly old man that has made it his goal in life to collect the very best of everything, be it the finest piece of carved ivory in the world or the largest diamond money can buy. A local salesman invites him to his shop one afternoon to show him a new piece for his collection - the very best doll house in the world. The miser becomes obsessed with the dollhouse and with its miniature occupants to the point that he shuts himself off from the rest of the world and becomes insulated. He elevates himself to the station of God over the dollhouse, and he begins to act accordingly devoting all his time to animating and altering the lives of those inanimate bits of finely carved woodwork. -- from a review
