 Le Tréport, France, first week of June, 1918. A group of Nursing Sisters, Canadian Army Medical Corps, arrives at a hospital farther behind the lines. They’re ordered to convalesce from fatigue and the various wounds suffered in the recent bombing of their own hospital nearer the front, in which 32 were killed—including three of their number.
When the news arrives that two of the Sisters will receive the Military Medal for their bravery on the night of the bombing, a controversy arises. Nursing Sisters of the CAMC are officers, and therefore the appropriate decoration isn’t the MM, but the Military Cross. The suffragette of the group protests and a campaign to be awarded the MC begins. While awaiting the ruling from General Headquarters and their new postings, the women (unaccustomed to idleness) try in vain to rest. Together they confront the effects of their wounds (both physical and mental) on their damaged ideals and beliefs, their grief, and their ability to salvage hope in their lives.
The Stars on Her Shoulders is presented by special arrangement with Stephen Massicotte
