Mary Marshall, serving a six year term for accidental manslaughter, is given a Christmas furlough from prison to visit her closest relatives, her uncle and his family in a small Midwestern town. On the train she meets Zach Morgan, a troubled army sergeant on leave for the holidays from a military hospital. Although his physical wounds have healed, he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and is subject to panic attacks. The pair are attracted to one another and in the warm atmosphere of the Christmas season friendship blossoms into romance, but Mary is reluctant to tell him of her past and that she must shortly return to prison to serve the remainder of her sentence.

You haven't changed, Mary. Not at all.
Thank you, Aunt Sarah. Oh, it's so good to be here.
I'm so glad to have you with us, dear. Awfully glad. Barbara, come on down! You can share Barbara's room.
Oh, dear, I don't want to disturb anybody. I, don't ...
Oh, nonsense. Barbara will love to have you. Here, for heaven's sake, give me your coat. Anyway, it's the guest room, or it was before Barbara was born. Besides, I think it would be a very good thing for Barbara. She's seventeen.

Proves the old adage, "you are as sick as your secrets."
Good World War II romantic drama with excellent performances by Ginger Rogers, Joseph Cotton and 16-year old Shirley Temple.
"I'll Be Seeing You" looks at the effects of a kind of `battle fatigue' known then as "old sergeant's syndrome". This particular form of post-traumatic stress occurred in battle-seasoned noncommissioned officers. After a dreadful encounter with someone's guard dog Sgt. Zachary Morgan, on leave from an Army mental hospital, experiences a very realistic and dramatically effective "flash back". Through judicious camera editing you see Joseph Cotton affect the appropriate 'sweat response', as his forehead, chest, shoulders and armpits become progressively more sweat-drenched. Very realistic!
This movie also subtly delivers the message that none of us are perfect and that open-mindedness and compassion are virtues called for under difficult circumstances.
