Based on the 1957 biography of Gladys Aylward by Alan Burgess titled "The Small Woman." Gladys Aylward (Ingrid Bergman) was born in 1902 in England. After being denied the opportunity to become a missionary due to her lack of education she paid her way to China and helped start a mission in Shansi Privince in 1930. In 1938 she guided over 100 orphans to safety over a mountain pass as Japanese forces invaded the area. According to the AFI catalog Aylward denounced the film and stated that the romance between her and a Chinese colonel depicted in the film was false. Nominated for an Academy Award.
