Werner is a middle-aged, temperamental orchestra conductor whom newspaper reporter Ferris is interviewing. The story is told in flashback. The paper prints a libelous remark Werner makes, and he is sued. Blacklisted temporarily, he goes off on a holiday and finds himself in love with
Ferris. Werner's wife, Maskell, unselfishly tells him that he can love the girl but he must never give up music. The film ends with Ferris giving up the romance: though she has great feelings for Werner, she is already married. The film falls somewhere between INTERMEZZO and BRIEF ENCOUNTER but
never quite captures the level of these two films. However Werner and Ferris do have a nice chemistry and make the story work. Billington made his film debut here after much BBC television work.
