Lionel Hardcastle (Geoffrey Palmer) returns to England after many years as a coffee planter in Kenya.

He's writing a book, "My Life In Kenya", and he needs secretarial help.

He hires a temporary secretary from an agency run by widow Jean Pargeter (Judi Dench).

When he discovers that Jean is the woman he was in love with until they lost touch during the Korean War, 38 years earlier, an old flame is rekindled.

After a somewhat shaky start, their revived relationship develops steadily until, eventually, they are married.
