Series of readings featuring extracts from the diaries of Edith Appleton, a nurse working close to the front line during the First World War.
It is 1915 and Edie has been moved to a hospital in Etretat on the Normandy coast, where she must supervise members of the Voluntary Aid Detachment.
These are well-meaning but relatively untrained girls and, at times, Edie finds their presence somewhat trying.
