London, 1944. Two young nurses meet at a train station with a common purpose: to join the war effort. Scarlet longs for the chance to find her missing fiancÃ©, Thomas, and to prove to her familyâ€”and to herselfâ€”that sheâ€™s stronger than everybody thinks. Nursing is in Ellieâ€™s blood, but her humble background is vastly different from Scarletâ€™s privileged upbringing. Though Ellie puts on a brave face, sheâ€™s just as nervous as Scarlet about what awaits them in France.
In Normandy, the two friends soon encounter the seemingly unflappable Lucy. Scarlet and Ellie are in awe of her courage and competence, but the experienced nurse is well aware of the dangers of the job theyâ€™ve chosenâ€”and even she is terrified they wonâ€™t make it home alive.
Pushed to their limits by the brutality of a world at war, Scarlet, Ellie and Lucy will need to rely on each otherâ€”and the power of their friendshipâ€”to survive.
