A homely maid and a scarred ex-GI meet at the cottage where she works and where he was to spend his honeymoon prior to his accident. The two develop a bond and agree to marry, more out of loneliness than love. The romantic spirit of the cottage, however, overtakes them. They soon begin to look beautiful to each other, but no one else.

It isn't as if I weren't aware of my ugliness. There's only one thing you've overlooked. Women like me, conscious as we may be of our defects, we find a refuge in our dreams, daydreams as well as night dreams; merciful dreams in which we're as lovely and desirable as the loveliest and most desirable woman in the world. It's cruel to destroy those dreams.
Some prints (including the Turner Home Entertainment video release) run 78 minutes. A number of scenes in the first half of the film, including the very sad scene with Dorothy McGuire in the soldier's dance hall, are missing from this shortened version. See more
