When a piece of shrapnel steals Luke Corrigan's sense of smell on the field of battle during World War II, he is sent back home on a disabled ticket. Once there, however, a series of events reverses the effect, and then some.

But on Mrs. MacNeil's farm, he discovers that this newfound power is far from a disability
