Additional Info

This powerful drama is based on the true story of Hannah Snell who in 1750, disguised as a boy, went to sea in search of her errant husband. For seven years she lived as a man boldly braving wounds, bloody battles and her own troubling visions. After returning home penniless, she was part of a successful stage act until visions of an apocalyptic future forced her to proclaim the horrors of war. Hannah was locked in Bedlam. Rescued, she sailed away to speak out for life and a continuing world.
