An American comes to a Lake District village in search of a song which his family used to know but has gradually forgotten. He's a composer and he's haunted by one tiny refrain and is anxious to discover the rest of the tune. The vicarage children help to introduce him to an elderly shepherd who refuses to sing it to him. Winter comes, they rescue him from a snowdrift and in exchange they get the song. The American returns with his friend from the BBC who also discovers one of the children has a talent for singing.
