Great-aunt Ardley has recalled all her child relatives back to America along with Annie out of fears for their safety if war breaks out in Europe.

The young Catherine is a pianist virtuoso and has mysterious stomach pains. The medical test do not explain what ails the girl.

Eventually both Catherine pulling some piano strings and Candy's stubbornness help the mother to realize how she hurts her daughter.
