Storyline

There are only ten countries in the world that allow women to fight in ground combat, and Canada is one of them. The mission in Afghanistan marks the first time in Canadian history that women soldiers are fighting on the frontlines.

SISTERS IN ARMS is a one-hour documentary that reveals the untold stories of three remarkable women in the most difficult and dangerous military professions facing combat on the battle fronts of Afghanistan. Corporal Katie Hodges is an infantry soldier; Corporal Tamar Freeman is a medical specialist; and Master Corporal Kimberly Ashton is a combat engineer and a mother who has left behind three young girls.

Using video diaries filmed by the soldiers in Afghanistan and personal interviews, SISTERS IN ARMS tells their stories of loss and inspiration from a uniquely female perspective, challenging our perception of what constitutes a soldier.
