It’s 1941, and English student Sarah is starting at a new school in San Francisco, USA. The following day will be Decoration Day and the senior students are gleefully celebrating the approaching holiday. Sarah, however, has seen a less carefree side to life, having survived The Blitz in London. The students at Bridgeman College endure personal struggles, find love and friendship and try to navigate the tricky transition from childhood to adulthood but are only left reeling when later that same year, Pearl Harbor hits Hawaii and changes everything.
