France, 1918. Sophia, the rebellious daughter of a distinguished German general, is on her way to the town of Douai to elope. On her way, she witnesses a dramatic battle in the skies that leaves an English pilot without a plane and under the misapprehension that Sophia is on his side.
She has no choice but to assist him, and he joins her in the family car she has stolen, trailed by both the German Army and a staff officer under strict instructions from Sophia's father to bring her home. With their pursuers hot on their heels, how will Sophia explain her behaviour? And after sharing so many adventures, will she be able to turn the pilot in when the time comes?
