It is also the story of the people she worked with and the people she cared for, particularly Eddie Nashida, a young mean diagnosed with TB.

The film follows their journey from the beginning at Hastings Park to a Sanatorium built in New Denver. It is a story of care in the midst of a tumultuous period in Canadian history and how the care for these patients transcended the events of the war.
