Overview

In 1950, in southwestern rural Ontario, two boys who had lost their fathers in the 2nd world war are on their way to swim in the river. They rescue a girl who has fallen in. She and her brother have moved into the farm across the river. They decide to design and build a bridge between their farms. The bridge is discovered by an older boy who threatens to destroy it. The four children, joined by a younger girl who has also lost her father in the war, inspired by Tolkien's Fellowship of the Ring, which was published during the War, form a secret Fellowship to save the bridge. In the bully's attempt to sabotage the bridge, one of the builders- and the bully- is injured, and his sister must fetch her father, who was a medic in the war, over the half-finished bridge to rescue them. A summer cloudburst has raised the height of the river and threatens the bridge, already weakened by the attempted sabotage. Will it stand?
