Plot Summary
Royal Air Force squadron leader W.C. Richardson (Ralph Richardson), his wife (Merle Oberon) and a relative, Bobby, placidly ignore the military rumblings from Nazi Germany in the late 1930s. Only after the German takeover of Austria, Czechoslovakia and the invasion of Poland do the Richardsons accept that there must be war.
