Nominated for nine Academy Awards, this "heartwarming and soul-stirring" (Variety) portrait of life on the homefront during World War II is "a magnificent picture...rich in humor [and] poignant with heartbreak" (The Hollywood Reporter). Claudette Colbert heads an all-star cast, including Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten and Shirley Temple, in this "beautifully produced picture that gets into your heart" (Los Angeles Examiner).
With her husband Tim off at war, Anne Hilton (Colbert) struggles to be a pillar of strength for her daughters Jane (Jones) and Bridget (Temple). During America's darkest hours, she bravely steers her girls through heartbreak and hardships as she eagerly awaits news from overseas and wonders if life will ever be the same.
