Scaled 1hallowedground portrait capturedimagephotography edit
Set against the vast landscape of world conflict from World War One to contemporary times, four women unite across a century to share their personal stories of active service as doctors in the military. Lilian, a surgeon in her fifties serves in the remote Balkan snowfields in World War I. In World War II, Mary is the only woman among 3000 British troops bound for the Middle East. On active service in Iraq, young doctor Tam, plagued by dreams of fleeing war-torn Saigon, reconciles her own refugee experience. 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.
