Colonel Michael Wentworth, once a Member of Parliament, is away at the front fighting. The shattering news that he has been killed in battle comes out of the blue. Diana‘s mind drifts back over their wonderful life spent together and she resolves to carry on her own life – and his. She is elected to Michael‘s old seat in Parliament, discovers a new reason for living and even falls in love again – And then a second message threatens to tear her in Michael is not dead. He has been a prisoner of war and his release is imminent. Which direction should she choose – to pursue her new life or to return to the life she once cherished? Directed by Compton Bennnett, this 1946 British feature film classic poignantly evokes the shattering effect of World War Two on so many married couples and the terrible struggles that would still be ahead, even after the guns had finally fallen silent…
