The story is about a young woman travels from home town in Austria to become a maid/nanny for a widowed naval officer. She teaches his children how to sing and enjoy life better. Musical.

Enough of such nostalgia. My family was always musically minded. I'm musically minded myself. Meaning, it's just in my mind.
