Set during WWII, Grant plays a retired history teacher fed up with just about everything, who wants to while his days away beachcombing and drinking, but is recruited by the Allies to be a spotter for enemy aircraft. Caron and her 7 schoolgirl charges are stranded on a neaby island and must be rescued by this reluctant hero.
