This is a real tear-jerker! *dries eyes* Derek has been injured in the war and is in hospital to have an operation. The doctor opens the window and the lovely singing of Helen Maxwell drifts into the room as Derek is anaethetised. Alas, when he wakes up it is with his memory gone. He doesn't remember his fiancee, and his mother is a stranger to him.

Four years later, Derek is playing the piano in a club, and Helen appears as the singer. The moment she opens her mouth, he freezes - he recognises her voice! It turns out Helen's voice is the only thing he can remember from before his operation, and his doctor encourages her to spend time with him, and sing to him, to see if she can help bring his memory back. They end up falling in love, but his memory does not return. Then the doctor thinks of one last idea, the final chance at bringing back Derek's memory, but in doing so, Helen faces the fact that she may lose him forever, and has to make a heartbreaking choice.

Good for a rainy afternoon tear-fest, but a little quick at just an hour in length. 9/10
