When Cady Hood learns that her husband Ezra has been killed at Antietam, she leaves the island of Nantucket disguised as a man named Achilles Grey and enlists in the Massachusetts 20th. Once on the mainland, Cady must adapt to life in a world of men (played by a chorus of women) who are fighting, dying, healing the wounded and falling in love.
