Based on a true story, Dorothy Lawrence undergoes a dangerous transformation into a British male soldier to report from the front lines of WW1.
At the outbreak of WWI, a young British journalist named DOROTHY LAWRENCE, yearns to experience the war firsthand as a reporter in the trenches. Dorothy travels to France as a freelance reporter where she meets two soldiers, TOM and BILL. She makes a daunting request to them -- to help her reach the front lines by transforming her into a male soldier. Moved by her passion to serve, but aware of the risks at hand, they teach her how to look, walk, and talk like a man, and drill and march like a soldier. Soon, 'Sapper Denis Smith' is born, but Dorothy's biggest test is yet to come. She leaves for the trenches and encounters a familiar face who may jeopardize her true identity. Will she make it past the army camp guards or will her true identity be discovered?
