Homesick at first and suspicious of the change in pace, she soon warms to her relatives and the quiet of her surroundings. She also falls for her eldest cousin Edmond (George MacKay) and they enjoy an idyllic romance. Suddenly, a world war breaks out and Britain is invaded. Along with the younger children, Daisy is left behind when local boys are rounded up and transported eleswhere. Confused and uncertain of the future, Daisy tries to keep the children safe and decides to go after Edmond. Her journey across a newly besieged and chaotic land brings about a change in her character and reminds her of what is really important in life.
