Movie Info

This drama, based on the book by Nevil Shute, focuses on Jean Paget (Virginia McKenna), a British office worker captured by the Japanese in Malaysia during World War II. Kept with other women prisoners, Jean eventually meets Australian soldier Joe Harman (Peter Finch), who secretly aids the weary group by stealing food. When Joe's actions are discovered, he is punished, and Jean assumes him to be dead. However, years later, she finds out he may still be alive, and sets out in search of him.
