Four women. Many stories. A century of service.
Lilian, a surgeon in her fifties, denied military service in World War One, serves with the renowned Scottish Women’s Hospital in the remote Balkan snowfields. In World War 2, Mary, a radiologist, finds herself the only woman among 3000 British troops bound for the Middle East. As a peacekeeper on active service in Iraq, young doctor Tam is plagued by dreams of her own refugee experience, fleeing war-torn Saigon. Catherine, a surgeon in Afghanistan, reflects on the journeys of the remarkable women who paved the way for her own experience as a modern military doctor. Four women converse across a century.
