Family drama set during World War II. It's the height of World War II. Jimmy and his sister Molly are a couple of the only kids to have not been evacuated to the countryside and with no school to speak of, they lead fairly carefree lives despite the war raging around them.
But tragedy strikes when their mother is killed in an air-raid and Nan, blaming their father for her death, forbids him to see the children ever again.
Can Jimmy and Molly figure out a way to see their father?
