The first black woman in the Royal Air Force, Lilian Bader challenges the history books. Both she and her husband fought in WW2 yet there aren’t any pictures or acknowledgement of the contribution of black servicemen and women. Fifteen years after the war, Edith, a person Lilian had tried to help, arrives at her door and brings new challenges. During the war years, Edith was trouble. Now, she stands before Lilian in a twin set and pearls. Why is she there? And why now?
