LORI and TRISH, two of a small group of the first women chosen to be cadets at West Point, are assigned to West Germany for Cadet Troop Leader Training in the summer of 1978. Maura and Anne, two of the first female ROTC commissioned lieutenants, are assigned as their sponsors.

Trailblazers explores the struggles the women face, as they spend the summer bonding and working together. These intrepid women face challenges every day as they struggle to earn the respect of their male peers and learn it can be lonely when rules and duty requirements are in conflict with personal desires or needs.
