1939. When war is declared, twins Shirley and Tom are evacuated to the coastal town of Worthing. Almost 14, they are very close to their mother, but leaving London is the only way to keep them safe. Shirley is the bright one of the pair, whereas Tom is sometimes slow to understand the world around him. But Shirley helps him get by and is his best friend and ally. The twins are taken in by a local farmer, but their new home quickly proves to be far from a rural dream
