Using archival footage and oral history interviews, this documentary reveals the hidden history of women pilots during World War II. The high stakes of war convinced military officials in Britain, Germany, the former Soviet Union, and the United States to recruit women pilots, but the women faced intense ridicule for doing a "man's job." These women recount their personal stories for how they fought two wars, one at home and one in the air, and remember how they were summarily dismissed after the war.
