In Cornwall during World War II, a half-blind airman falls for a pianist with a weak heart
After discovering that she has only a short time left to live, concert pianist Lissa travels to Cornwall for the final fling of her life.
While there, she falls in love with young mineral prospector Kit, a man whose dark secret prevents him from fighting in the War.
Unbeknownst to Lissa, however, Kit's affections are also much in demand from a rival of hers.
The spectacular theatre scenes were filmed at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall.
