The Second World War is in full force. With one brother missing in action, another about to go overseas, and parents wrapped up in supporting the Canadian war effort, 14-year-old Ellen Logan is forced to shoulder many family responsibilities. Her airplane-fanatic younger brother, Colin, brings Ellen together with Stephen Dearborn -- an underage British teen whose romantic dreams of being a flyer are shattered by the harsh reality of his training. Forced to grow up before their time, the group of friends depend on each other.
