Glasgow, 1928. Margaret Bannatyne lost both of her brothers in the Great War and is now the last remaining child of wealthy and powerful shipyard owner William Bannatyne.
Without a male heir to carry on the family business, William expects his daughter to do her duty, marry well and provide him with a grandson to inherit his business.
Margaret loves her father but she has ambitions of her own: after witnessing a horrific accident when she was sixteen, she's determined to become a doctor.
Indulged by her father who believes a woman will never be allowed to work as a doctor, he lets Margaret finish her training but he doesn't count on her meeting Alisdair Morrison.
Alisdair, a union man at the shipyard, is everything William doesn't want for his daughter.
Margaret knows her father will disown her if she pursues a relationship with Alisdair but she can't deny her feelings for him.
Suddenly she's faced with an impossible, heart-breaking choice . . . will she choose love or obligation?
