Review: Davy Bowman learns about sacrifice and "eight to five orphans," children left alone when their mothers join the war effort by working in factories. Explores the relationships between fathers and sons during the early days of the U.S. involvement in World War II. Lightness throughout keeps the shadow of war at a distance.
