2 Blu Ray Set Season 1 Mercy Street

2-Blu-Ray Set: Mercy Street

 Based on true stories, Mercy Street takes viewers beyond the battlefield and  into the lives of Americans on the Civil War home front as they face challenges  of one of the most turbulent times in our nation’s history. Set in the spring of  1862, Mercy Street follows the lives of two volunteer nurses on opposite sides  of the conflict; Mary Phinney, (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a New England  abolitionist, and Emma Green, (Hannah James), a naive Confederate belle. The  two collide at Mansion House, the Green family’s luxury hotel that has been  taken over and transformed into a Union Army Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia.  Ruled under martial law, Alexandria is now the melting pot of the region, filled with soldiers, civilians, female volunteers, doctors, wounded men, runaway slaves, prostitutes, speculators and spies. The intersection of North and South within a small occupied town creates a rich world — a cauldron within which these characters strive, fight, love, laugh, betray, sacrifice and, at times, act like scoundrels. This series is not about battles and glory, it’s about the drama and unexpected humor of everyday life behind the front lines. It’s a fresh twist on an iconic story, one that resonates with larger themes we still struggle with today. This DVD features subtitles in English.
