Fleeing London amid the chaos of the Blitz, horticulturalist Gwen Davis arrives at a rundown country estate to supervise a group of young women growing food for the war effort. It turns out the Women's Land Army volunteers are sharing the estate with a Canadian regiment awaiting deployment, and Gwen must guide her charges both in cultivating the land and in socializing with the young soldiers.
