Overview

Anna Friel and Aden Young star in this romantic drama set against the backdrop of World War II, and following a wide-eyed London girl who falls for a Canadian soldier. The year is 1943, and as war wages across Europe, vivacious young Lily becomes smitten with rugged Canadian Charlie. The couple soon enters into a whirlwind romance, and after Lily becomes pregnant Charlie is forced to return to the front lines. Later, Lily and her daughter travel to Canada with Charlie, eager to start a new life on his family's peaceful, countryside ranch. Upon arriving in the Great White North, however, this optimistic war bride quickly discovers that her new husband's family "ranch" is actually a decrepit old farm house further removed from the big city than she could have ever imagined. And, though Charlie's embittered mother (Brenda Fricker) and sister (Molly Parker) prove particularly unwelcoming to the unassuming girl from London, Lily vows that her spirit will not be broken and her daughter will be raised in a happy home.
