  • A touching WWII story of a reluctant young hero who, when given leave from the front, sets out to see his mother and fix up the roof of their house. On his way home he encounters odd little adventures, including a innocent romance with a homeless girl who stows away on his military train. He finally arrives home with only enough time to look at his mother before he has to turn around and go back to the front.
