In this heavy duty soap-opera Josephine Norris (Olivia de Havilland) is a lonely, middle-aged American businesswoman who has never married and is living in London during World War II.
For over twenty years she has clung to the memory of her one true romantic love, Captain Bart Cosgrove, who was presumed killed during World War I. Before she died she became pregnant but their son has brought up not knowing she is his mother while she has doted on him from a distance.
Now her son is himself a pilot.
