It's 1913, and, thousands of women gather in Washington, D.C. to march for a constitutional amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote.

It's 1886. Ten-year-old Isabelle is enamored of the enormous statue about to be unveiled in New York harbor. Her father and brother are going to the dedication, and Isabelle doesn't understand why, as a girl, she's not allowed, even though a woman has been chosen to represent liberty. That has also drawn the attention of the Woman's Suffrage Association. They have something to say about it and a daring plan to make themselves heard.
