Loosely based on a '50's movie of the same name, it tells the story of two young orphan boys who travel by themselves from the Old country to join their father's family in Canada. There they encounter their stern disciplinarian grandfather who has alienated himself from some of his neighbors. There is particularly no love lost between the grandfather and his Dutch neighbors, who he generalizes as being responsible for his son's death in the Boor War. A side product of this animosity is that it is keeping apart the boy's aunt and her Dutch doctor suitor. The two boys change everything though when they find a young baby on the beach... Written by

[Willem is dropping off Kirsten at her house
This is far enough, Willem? Do not let my father see.
Well, if your father has any sense, he would've been asleep for hours.
[helps Kirsten off the buggy
I can't let you go without telling you how much I enjoyed being with you tonight.
I never knew dancing could be so wonderful.
