June 1944. Allied Forces stand ready to re-take Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler's Blitzkrieg. Fearful of repeating the terrible slaughter of the Gallipoli beaches in 1915, he is terrified he'll be remembered as an architect of carnage. Only the support of Churchill's brilliant, yet exasperated wife Clementine can halt his physical and mental collapse.
Set in the 24 hours before D-Day, this is an intimate and personal portrait of the wartime leader and his relationship with "Clemmie" - his backbone and the love that inspired him to greatness.
