June 1944. Allied forces stand on the brink: a massive army is secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, to retake Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill.
Behind the iconic figure and his rousing speeches, we see a man who was ridiculed politically, was responsible for military defeats and had a speech impediment. An impulsive, at times bullying personality - fearful, obsessive, and hurtful.
The incredible story of Britain's most famous leader uncovers the truth behind his strong position in wartime and showing us the strength of his wife 'Clemmie' - his rock and confidential friend ... a love that inspired his greatness.
