When Paul Bristol returns home from Europe, he knows his involvement in the war is inevitable, though reluctant. As an artist and photographer he is requested to go to the battlefront and capture Confederate bravery on film. But he needs an assistant trained in photography. Because of time constraints, he has no choice but to accept an independent young woman named Frankie Aimes.
And so the two load up their equipment and head for the dangers of the battlefield. But there is another danger hanging over their heads, a danger Bristol knows nothing about, for Frankie is hiding a secret that could get them both killed if it is discovered.
