Beatie Bryant, daughter of farm laborers, works in London where she fell in love with Ronnie Kahn. She goes home and enthusiastically tells her family about his views on life. Ronnie is to visit the Bryants and everyone is eager, if skeptical, to meet him but he doesn't turn up. He writes that he doesn't think it would work. Ronnie's disillusionment has seeped into his relationship with Beatie. Stunned and under her mother's mockery, Beatie stutters into a defense which becomes an attack on her stifling background and blossoms into a vision of what could have been.
