Lily Valance wants to forget the war. She's determined to
enjoy the world of the 1920s, with its music, singing,
laughter and pleasure. When she meets Captain Stephen
Winters, a decorated hero, back from the Front, she's drawn
to his wealth and status. In Lily he sees his salvation -
from the past from the nightmares, from the guilt at
surviving the Flanders plains where so many were lost.
But it's a dream that cannot last. Lily has no intention
of leaving her singing career. The hidden tensions behind
the respectable facade of the Winters household come to a
head. Stephen's nightmares merge ever closer with reality
and the truth of what took place in the mud and darkness
brings him and all who love him to a terrible reckoning...
