When a tomboyish postulant at an Austrian Abbey proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children and brings a love of life and music back into the home. They fall in love and marry, but upon returning from their honeymoon, they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.
