Cast & Crew
The story of a middle-aged British couple who have failed to make a go of a plantation on Samola (one of His Majesty's islands in the south Pacfic) and who, on the eve of World War II, are about to return to England. But Mr. Edgehill is asked by the government to represent the British Empire on an isolated island that may be used as a site for an American airfield. The couple reluctantly take up quarters on the island, where they are befriended by a kindly English noblewoman. Later, they receive a portrait of the king and the queen as a sort of emblem of their struggle for Britain.
