This French documentary traces the overlapping journeys of exceptional French and European women who were swept up in World War I, women like Marie Curie, Edith Wharton, Mata Hari, and Rosa Luxemburg. It explores the situation of women at different home fronts of the Central and Allied Powers, including their involvement in war work in agriculture, administration and industry, their patriotic war charity, and their war support close to the front lines as auxiliaries, doctors and nurses. It shows that some women in Russia were even fighting as soldiers in their own battalions.
