War is rendered as a childhood adventure in this autobiographical film set in London and its countryside during World War II. Nine-year-old Bill experiences the London Blitz as a terrifying fireworks show and war as the relaxation of normal restrictions and discipline. The women in his life cope with love and the loss of it through war.
