Desperate to escape her hard-drinking father (Donald Pleasence) Jeannie is raped and impregnated by her brother Jimmy's army friend (Doug McGrath) while he's visiting on leave. Jeannie's long-suffering mother (Doris Petrie) provides no solace, and matters come to a head when her father discovers his daughter's situation. In order to save the family name, he convinces Sandy, a middle-aged friend from the legion hall, to step into the breach and marry his daughter.|
