"In the summer of 1940, retired solicitor John Sidney Howard (Peter O'Toole) decides to cut short his peaceful fishing holiday in the Jura mountains because of the German advance into France
But on his journey home to England, Mr Howard finds himself a reluctant chaperone to a growing number of refugee children.
Accompanied by a young French woman (Mare Winningham), they undertake the dangerous trek across occupied France, troubled by shortage of food, disrupted transport and Mr. Howard's increasingly serious heart complaint.
Based on the novel by Nevil Shute, this is an unforgettable human drama."

I've ran the audio through MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab (Thanks to rondbowes and daono ;-) ) to remove the VHS hum that is often present in older VHS cassettes and included a small sample for anyone who wishes to view the quality before downloading.
