The true story of Mary Seacole, the "Celebrated Heroine of the Crimean War". Over two hundred years ago in Kingston, Jamaica, a little girl called Mary watched as her mother selected a bottle of medicine for a sick British soldier. This marked the beginning of Mary Seacole's passion for nursing, which would go on to shape the rest of her life.

As a young woman, she would have to overcome personal tragedy - the sudden loss of her mother and husband - and prejudice from her peers to reach the battlefields of the Crimean War, nursing soldiers back to health and even carrying them from the midst of the fighting.
