In this tender tale of American dreams, an elderly school teacher prepares to meet a former student, and current Presidential candidate. She has not seen him for twenty five years; her reminiscence is projected via flashback as she recalls the boy had a big crush on her. She remembers how jealous he was when he learned that she was secretly married to another teacher. To help him deal with it, the teacher gave him extra attention and encouraged him to develop hobbies and other interests. Meanwhile her husband joins the Canadian forces and goes off to fight WW I, and is killed in battle.
