It is July 4, 1944 in Lebanon, Missouri. Matt Friedman (Jonas Cohen) has decided to once and for all declare his love for Sally Talley (Laurel Casillo) and to ask her hand in marriage.

Sally struggles with the idea of the two living a life together, but as their time together progresses, it is clear that they have truly found the perfect match.
