Billie Challinor's mother dies during an air raid, but the child grows up confident that in her jazz musician father, Chas, she has the best dad in the world. They seek refuge from the London Blitz by moving to Leeds, where kindly landlady Liz Morris befriends them: the scarred, wisecracking man who isn't afraid to overstep the mark if the cause is a...
