Following the loss of her fiance in WW1, a devastated Flora Ferguson arrives in Southampton, alone and desolate.
With the love of her life gone for ever, she determines to devote herself to the street-children who live around the docks and to free them from their poverty and squalor.
But through this sacrifice comes unexpected fulfilment, for not only does Flora find her work wonderfully rewarding, but she finds a new degree of happiness through her friendship with the handsome and dedicated Dr Richard Goodwin - a man who shares her compassion and desire to help.
Comforted by their closeness, Flora pushes away the thought that if only Richard weren't married to the spoilt and selfish Lydia, he may have been the one to mend her broken heart...
