Love is in the air.
After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to rejoin his intrepid young Hurricane squadron at RAF Fontwell (formerly Malaprop Hall, East Sussex).
Back on British soil, Jack is shocked to find his old flame, Lydia, on the base.
Setting his sights on winning her heart, Jack's advances turn to anarchy when the young heiress demands to be loved on her own terms.
