Growing up fascinated with the fossils she collected on the beach, Mary Anning blossomed into a skillful amateur paleontologist. When she discovers an intriguing fossilized skeleton, townspeople and religious authorities react viciously. In an arena dominated by men, Mary is barred from the scientific community but her friend Elizabeth Philpot, herself a fossil collector, stands up for her even after the two women have a falling out over Mary's romance with a man above her class.
