A biopic about Gertrude Bell, a Victorian adventurer who worked for the Foreign Office from the end of the XIX century and early XX century. Especially during the WW1. She was totally in love with the Middle East: Arabia, Iran, Iraq. Interesting woman. Interesting life.

She had an incredible influence on how the frontiers after WW1 in the British protectorate were drawn. She was an archaeologist, a traveller, an explorer. Someone to discover.
