An Australian flyer home on leave in Melbourne meets a mysterious young woman at a dance. Captain Smith is determined to enjoy his brief time away from the war in England, and Molly, the girl he meets that first night, has almost given up on finding a man to spend her life with.
Time moves rapidly in wartime, and so it does for William and Molly. After a whirlwind romance, the two young people resolve to wait for each other, but will fate see them together? The life expectancy of a flyer in World War Two was measured in weeks, so Captain William Smith and his crew will have to continue their run of luck if William is to make it home to Molly.
