Deanna returns to the role of Penny Craig the part that made her an international box office sensation. Now Penny is all grown up and determined to do her bit for America as war clouds loom over the nation. She proudly signs up to work in an aircraft factory. However, Penny being Penny, she also has another reason for signing on at that particular factory. She's set her sights on a rather charming and handsome young pilot Bill Morley (Joseph Cotten) attached to the factory and desperately wants to be close to him. Just as young love starts to bloom, Bill is called away to fight and serve overseas and Penny is left behind fearing for his safety and dreaming of their future together.
