A WW I British fighter pilot lands his damaged Camel and enters into the life of a ingenuous young French girl. She had never been out of her little village since joining her gruff and coarse uncle. Her only escape has been reading romantic fantasies, but when her "Airy Prince" flies her to London for a whirlwind visit, she sees a glimpse of a greater world and has a hope that her pilot beau will return the next year.
