The classic story of a World War Two evacuee who finally finds the home he needs. When the Blitz thrusts scrawny evacuee Willie Beech into the care of a gruff old man, an unlikely bond flourishes between them. Willie comes from a rough, deprived home. Life with Mister Tom is his first taste of human kindness. But Willie’s new happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in London. As time passes, Tom begins to worry. Why hasn’t Willie answered his letters? He must find him. Something is wrong…
