1940, London, the Blitz. With the nation bowed down by war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Realising their films could use “a woman’s touch,” the ministry hires untried screenwriter, Catrin Cole, to work alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley, and eccentric actor, Ambrose Hilliard. As bombs are dropping all around them, they work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.
