Russell, New Zealand, 1938. Mariette, daughter of Belle and Etienne, goes on a trip to London. Once she’s there, she gets caught up in the glamour of the West End. However, when London is hit by the Blitz, she ends up alone in the East End, worlds away from anything she knows. She realises the only way to find true happiness is to fight and muster all the selflessness and compassion she can.
