Summary, etc.:
The autobiographical film is a nostalgic and gently comic remembrance of England during the turbulent Blitz as seen through the eyes of ten-year-old Billy Rohan. While the beauty of the aircrafts and tanks holds endless wonders for the young boy, others know all too well the destruction they bring. Navigating difficult times are mother Grace, who finds herself head of the household when her husband is drafted; Billy's sister, Dawn, whose romance and pregnancy with the dashing Canadian airman is yet another challenge for the stoic Grace; and George, Billy's curmudgeonly grandfather whose idyllic country home will open Billy's eyes to a whole new world.
