Plot Summary
Bookworm Alfred Polly (John Mills) is a hopeless daydreamer who cannot keep his mind on the task at hand, hence his inevitable dismissal from his dreary job as a draper's assistant. He has no idea what to do with his life. Alfred's uncle (Finlay Currie) advises him to use the sum he inherited from his father to marry his cousin (Betty Ann Davies) and invest in a shop. He does all this, but does not find himself any happier -- until a stroll in the countryside leads him to a new opportunity.
