It is World War II and American soldiers stationed in rural England have made friends, especially with the local girls. After a dance to celebrate the pressing of the apples into cider, the resentment of the local men leads to violence and a murder. Later, a child is born, a girl. When she grows up, she tries to find out more about her soldier-father. And long-forgotten jealousies and hatreds come frothing to the surface.
