From the website:

During World War II, Nora Cundell was a Casualty Superintendent in London, part of the civilian defense organization formed to protect citizens during enemy bombing raids. Nora, who had driven alone across the United States a few years previously, now drove an ambulance through London streets during the night, transporting injured victims to hospitals. This would have been a highly dangerous job, traveling through the dark city during the blackout, exposed to the explosives and fires erupting all around from the incendiary chemical and gas bombs dropped by the German Luftwaffe.
