Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
When a pregnant girl watches her lover die after he has stepped on an old World War II mine, the woman tries to give her unborn child his name. The unmarried girl encounters resistance from the father's parents, who refuse to lend their name to the child or ever believe the two wished to be married. She becomes the talk of the town for trying to marry a dead man. Undaunted, the woman has her baby and gives it her lover's name. Five years later, she returns triumphantly on a horse cart with her son, named after his father, for all the town to see in this sentimental story of a mother's love.
