While World War II rages, Patty Bergen (Kristy McNichol) lives in rural Georgia with her family. One day, the young Jewish girl makes a surprising discovery: There's a German POW named Anton (Bruce Davison) living in her family's barn. While working at a nearby farm, opportunity struck and he made a run for it. Rather than turning Anton in, Patty aids the escaped soldier, and over time the pair fall in love. They must live, however, in constant fear of being discovered.
