Abstract:

Carole and Stefan meet during an air raid in Warsaw. She is an American journalist and he is a Polish flyer, seeking refreshment in the music which is his real life. They realize the attraction between them but they are soon separated. After the fall of Poland, Stefan escapes to America where he is reunited with Carole and they marry. He continues his career as a pianist in concerts for Polish relief. He learns squadrons are forming in England and answers the call despite Carole's objections. In the Battle of Britain, he fights valiantly and crashes, losing his nerve and music. She restores him to himself.
