During World War I, the pastor of a quaint Pacific Northwest farming town adopts two German orphans, Helmut and Brigitta. The townsfolk are suspicious of the children and of the new schoolteacher, Mr. Conlon (Peter Coyote), who causes a stir by teaching German opera and showing his students a new game from the east called basketball.
