1 hr. 21 min.
In the midst of war-torn London, American journalist John Davis (Robert Young) and his wife, Nora (Laraine Day), lose their unborn baby in a bombing raid. The resultant surgery leaves Nora barren, and, while she returns to the United States to recuperate, John stays in England. When he takes young orphans Margaret (Margaret O'Brien) and Peter (William Severn) under his wing, John decides that he wants to remove the children from harm's way and bring them home to America.
