Additional Info

A young British aristocrat serving as a nurse near the front during World War I, against the wishes of her family and fiance, forms a strong bond with a wounded American Indian. They correspond after he is sent home to heal.
Their letters are the core of a drama that involves concern, respect, pain, conflict, indecision, love, tragedy and finally triumph when "Miss Nurse" rejects her preordained life for the freedom and fulfillment she finds nursing the poverty stricken Lakotas in South Dakota.
