The story of WWI's front line medics — their hopes, fears, triumphs, and tragedies.

In a tented field hospital on the coast of France, a team of doctors, nurses, and women volunteers work together to heal the bodies and souls of men wounded in the trenches. The hospital is a frontier: between the battlefield and home front, but also between the old rules, hierarchies, and a new way of thinking.
