Martha Washington, born into an American nightmare in the Chicago slums,
decides to fight for American dream. On battlefields ranging from the American
jungle to outer space, Martha Washington proves that heroes don't always come
from West Point; sometimes they come from the ghetto. Against all odds, she
triumphs in a desperate battle for freedom. In this struggle she is cast in many
roles: prisoner, runaway, lunatic, seditionist and soldier. But at her core she
is always a true champion of the human spirit.
