A lonely orphan raised by her prim grandmother at the turn of the 20th century, Agnes is haunted by vague memories of her father, a renowned Montreal physician who disappeared after being accused of her sister's murder. Agnes is determined to follow in his footsteps as a doctor, even though medical schools are closed to women. Against the odds, she becomes a world-renowned specialist of the human heart. But the void caused by her father's disappearance means that she needs to fix her own.
