Easy going Willie tags along as burly Peter bullies gentle, stuttering Raymond. John stands up to Peter as plain Audrey takes out her frustrations on the boys at being overshadowed by Angela's prettiness.

Blue Remembered Hills features moments to make you laugh and cry to bring out the child in all of us.
