The final days of WWII are turbulent ones for 16-year old Terry Fleming (Adam ButcherRookie Blue) – a sharp young man who fantasises about what it might be like to work at the airport hotel in Gander, Newfoundland, where pilots and movie stars rub shoulders with the locals.

When his mother becomes gravely ill and the family house is quarantined, it is Terry’s brilliant imagination that carries him on a poignant journey of love and longing. Terry conjures up the hotel world to keep his fears at bay, dreaming of encounters with show business legends complete with a spy mystery and a romance with his vivacious neighbour Laurie Dwyer (Joanne KellyWarehouse 13). But with a war outside and death upstairs, Terry must choose between boyhood fantasies or confronting life's hard truths.
