Tom and Lily have just been married, and go searching for the sun, which has been absent for many years, on their honeymoon.
Tom and Lily's scooter breaks down and forces them to stay in a terrible town with a mean, greedy old man.
The couple discover that an old woman has dropped her purse in town, and they go to her cottage to return it to her. There, they discover the sunshine they've been searching for, and stay with her for several days.
Tom and Lily go back to the village to see if their scooter has been repaired yet, and are trapped by Mr. Noakes, asking about where they've been. The couple has to decide whether to go back to the cottage or to keep Mrs. Hatching's sunshine safe.
Tom and Lily decide to keep the Hatching cottage safe, and drive away, leaving Lily's wedding dress.
Ma Hatching and her cottage are safe, and Tom and Lily never visit again.
