This documentary traces the vital role played by Canadian women in the war effort , as they began replacing the men at war, in the building of the world's much-needed fighter planes. Several of the women who built the "Hurricanes" are interviewed and provide insight into their work at Canadian Car at Fort William, Ontario. The first female engineer and designer, Elsie MacGill, is included as a pioneer in aviation design.
