Based on the true story of a heroine and humanitarian...

Born in the jungles of Borneo, Elizabeth Choy travels to Singapore
and becomes a teacher. As a result of helping prisoners-of-war
during the Japanese Occupation, she is imprisoned by the Japanese military police and subject to torture. Yet, Elizabeth's spirit remains unbroken. Journey with our wartime heroine as she overcomes adversity to meet her namesake, Queen Elizabeth of England, and become one of Southeast Asia's most celebrated women.
