Synopsis

Ordered unexpectedly back into action, Captain Trent is unable to obtain a marriage license and, without benefit of clergy, must spend the night with his fiancée, Kitty Vane, in an English inn. Trent is blinded in battle and taken prisoner by the Germans. He is reported to be dead, and his friend, Captain Shannon, discreetly woos Kitty, seeking to soothe her grief with his gentle love. After the war, Shannon finds Trent in a remote corner of England, writing children's stories for a living. Loyal to his former comrade in arms, Shannon informs Kitty of Trent's reappearance. She goes to him, and he conceals his blindness, telling Kitty that he no longer cares for her. She sees through his deception, however, and they are reunited.
