This follows the story of Alice (Gemma Arterton), a reclusive writer resigned to a solitary life on the seaside cliffs of Southern England while World War II rages across the channel. She opens her front door one day to find she’s to adopt a young London evacuee named Frank (Toby Osmond). Alice was initially resistant to her unexpected task. It’s not long, however, before the two realize they have more in common in their pasts than Alice had assumed.
