In the spring of 1864 Josephine Robison takes matters into her own hands after both no correspondance from her soldier husband in almost a year and the death of their only child. After cutting her hair and putting on her husband's clothes, she enlists in the army of Tennessee as Joseph Robison to find him. For the next 5 months, spanning across three states and five-hundred miles, Josephine struggles to keep her identity a secret as she battles the enemy and the suspicious, battle-hardened sergeant of her unit who has a secret of his own. With only the friendship of an over-the-hill soldier who has nothing to live for and her love for a man that she's willing to die for, Josephine's journey to find her husband John ultimately leads her into a final battle where she has to choose between the man she loves and the men that need her.
