Fredrika is accomplished, privileged and utterly committed to becoming a pilot. To achieve this goal she must defy her family and the provincial middle-class society into which she was born. She becomes an Olympic glider pilot, a national heroine. Driven by ambition, she learns to fly propeller planes and dreams of jets and rockets.
Volunteering daily for the most hazardous flights, Freddy forces the Luftwaffe to accept her. The only woman flyer in military service, she becomes Germany's top test pilot. Her courage and daring belie the Nazi prescription for German womanhood: kinder, kuche, kirche.
But she has put her talents at the service of evil, a fact brought home to her when she falls in love with a woman, putting them both in peril.
