“A Private War” is a drama based on a true miracle story and a “womance” between two women who become unlikely friends from worlds apart. British Soldier Eileen Wilson's life of adventure and service is halted when a bizarre neurological illness leaves her laid flat for 20 years unable to move normally in a convent nursing home. Through grace, devotion, true grit and innovation they seek to mend one friend’s broken body and in doing so transform both their souls. Across the ocean and in secret the women, by unconventional means, work to re-wire a body that has been so badly disconnected from control, in order to set her free.
