This is

the story of my family.

Me, my three

beautiful children

and my husband.

There is our lovely farm.

lt's been in my

husband's family

for generations.

The sad thing is,

my husband is away

fighting in a war,

so we're on our own.

We're all terribly

worried about him,

of course,

but on the whole,

l'm coping well.

Very well. Very well, indeed.

No fighting in

the best parlor!

That's me, coping.

Lemon drop.


That's very

naughty of you.

They're coping, too.

Get off the furniture!

Vincent, off, off, off!

They started it.

Get off the furniture!

We're all coping.

We're fine.

You're on the furniture!

You're on the furniture!

We're fine.

Then stop shouting!

We're not shouting.

You're shouting.

We are supposed to

be getting the farm


before the cousins

arrive tomorrow.

And instead, all you're

doing is fighting,

fighting, fighting,

when what l want to

be seeing is sharing,

sharing, sharing.

lmagine how sad you'd be

if you had to be

taken away from home

because of bombs dropping

all over the place.

We're not sharing

the jam with them.


We're not sharing

Dad's jam with

the cousins.

Oh, no, of course not.

That's for Dad

when he comes home.

l'm talking about

your room and your toys.

Why won't he

reply to my letter?

We're not talking

about Dad, darling.

But why won't he reply?

His last one came years ago.

No, darling.


Three months ago,

that's all.

You see?

(SlGHlNG) Dad's in the Army.

They move him about a lot,

that's all it is.

There is nothing to

worry about, all right?


Now, l've got to run,

but you've got to

clean up the farm

for the cousins.

What are they

actually like,

the cousins?

They're city children,

and l imagine

they're rather refined.

And l am sure

that they are

very well-behaved.



he's vomming again.

Stop the car.

He's vommed all

over my shoes!

lt's all right, Blenkinsop.

Stopped now.

Where are my


Master Cyril,

are them marshmallows

a wise choice,

given your

recent evacuation?

Marshmallows are always

a wise choice, thanks.

You beast!

You've ruined my

brand-new Fontarelli

patent-leather pumps,

and l've left

the pale pink at home.

You beast, beast, beast!

Oh, look.


How sweetly pretty.

ls that the place?









Vincent, chores, now.

But the piglets

are getting sold tomorrow,

and you said

l could scratch them

before they went away.

Dad left me in charge,

and what l say goes.

Now, get off.

But Dad built the

Scratch-o-Matic for them.

l said, get off!

l'm getting off.

l'm getting off.

And no more scratching.

l'm going to

check the barley.







How is my gorgeous



Your coat's inside out.


Nylons you need

with that skirt.


No? ''No'' what?

You know perfectly

well no what.

l'm not selling.

lsabel, look at me.

Look at me.

Who am l? Who am l?

You're my


l'm family, lz,

is all l'm pointing out,

and that's why

you can trust me.

All right, Phil.

What's your point?

lz, we need to

sell the farm, now.

You haven't even

got enough money

for tomorrow's payment

on the tractor,

and if there's no tractor,

there's no harvest.

lf there's no harvest,

the farm will fail.

l said no.

And actually,

Norman's thought of a way
