On the death of her husband Harry, a Los Angeles businessman, American Nancy Belasco and her son Jake are insolvent. Much of his money is invested in St Maud's College at Cambridge University, a university he loved. So Nancy, who was born in Cambridge as the child of a GI bride, and Jake decide to go and live in Cambridge. She soon gets a job as an assistant bursar, while Jake enrolls at the college and gets involved with the Hon. Lucy Courtney. The Master of the College is Sir Dickie Hobhouse.
