Paul is a young Army officer; Betty is the wife of a naval officer, Eric; they have a six-year-old daughter, Rosalie. Paul and Betty witness the attack on Pearl Harbor. Betty then goes to Washington, D.C., to work as a civilian for the Navy, learning self-reliance. Eric goes into combat. Paul is stationed in D.C.; he and Betty continue their tortured love affair.

A mysterious colonel in the Pentagon sides with Paul. At the same time, Paul and Betty risk his career and her custody of the child (and the child’s happiness) by revealing their love.
