Inspired by the true story of Margaret Ann Bulkley, a young woman born in nineteenth-century Ireland. Her heart broken by the constant threat of poverty but her spirit awakened by the challenge of two gentlemen. Margaret enrolls in medicine at Edinburgh University and, after years of dedicated study, becomes a surgeon. It is a story of struggle and triumph made all the more exceptional because Margaret Anne Bulkley does it disguised as a man.
