How the people of Walcheren Island (Netherlands) have—with courage, perseverance and faith—reclaimed their island from the sea by repairing the dikes that were destroyed in the war. They are building a new life with the help of the European Recovery Program. This well-filmed early evidence of Marshall Plan achievement was distributed theatrically in nine ERP nations in eight language versions.
