"This story of an average English middle-class family begins with the summer of 1939; when the sun shone down on a happy, careless people, who worked and played, reared their children and tended their gardens in that happy, easy-going England that was so soon to be fighting desperately for her way of life and for life itself."--Title screens. [The film] dramatizes the effect of the Second World War on the English at home. Mrs. Kay Miniver's tranquil domestic existence is torn to shreds by the winds of war: her husband, Clem, disappears on a secret volunteer mission; eldest son, Vin, joins the RAF; and the village faces regular German bombings with a typically British stiff-upper-lip.

Songwriter Eddie gets the girls a part in a revue featuring his song, "The Broadway Melody." Eddie, long engaged to Hank, falls for Queenie, whom he hasn't seen since she was a little girl. But Eddie and Queenie are both devoted to Hank, so Queenie gives in to the wooing of one of the show's rich backers, so as not to come between Hank and Eddie.
