Ida Lupino and Paul Henreid fall in love while Poland falls to the Nazis in this stirring wartime drama directed by Vincent Sherman and costarring silent-screen and stage legend Alla Nazimova. In March 1939, English tourist Jenny Whittredge (Lupino) travels to Warsaw to buy antiques and meets Stephan Orvid (Henreid), a Polish count she marries after a whirlwind courtship. Moving onto his family's farming estate, Jenny is looked down upon by Stephan's aristocratic sister (Nancy Coleman), uncle (Victor Francen) and mother (Nazimova), but succeeds in helping her husband modernize and make the harvests more profitable. Their happiness is short-lived, however, when Hitler invades and the couple must decide whether to defend the land or flee the German army.
