Night after night, WWII bomber aircrews flew operations from English airfields. They were ordinary men asked to do extraordinary things. Many left behind families and secrets. One involves Barbara MacDonald, a London actress, who learns from her dying mother that her father was shot down over Germany in 1943. Barbara's quest to find out about him takes her across England and out to Canada. What she learns changes her attitude toward her parents, herself, and her profession. But it will also confront her with the greatest challenge of her life.
