American Rose is one of the best flyers in the Air Transport Auxiliary, yet she yearns to be able to fly fighter planes, rather than ferrying Allied planes in England.  Her uncle’s influence finally gives her a mission which takes her to France, but on the return trip she is captured by the Nazis and ultimately sentenced to prison in the notorious concentration camp, Ravensbruck.  There she meets an incredible group of women, who risk everything to help keep each other alive.
