Story [by Margaret Kennedy] opens in the Austrian mountains where a slightly mad composer and his daughters, all half-sisters and all hoydens, live a carefree life of idyllic sweetness. There is a younger composer (Brian Aherne) and for him one of the girls (Victoria Hopper) conceives an undying passion.

He marries a respectability-minded English cousin (Leonora Corbett) and moves to London. Ultimately he realizes he should have waited for the girl to add a year or two to her age and married her instead of the older woman.

It is a soft, delicate, fragile, meandering yarn, beautifully directed by Basil Dean.
