A ticking-clock thriller following Winston Churchill in the 96 hours before D-Day. Tensions mount for Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) in the days leading up to the infamous D-Day landings in Normandy, June 1944. Fearful of repeating deadly mistakes from World War I in the Battle of Gallipoli and exhausted by years of war, he is plagued by depression and obsessed with his historical destiny. Clashing with his Allied political opponents U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower and Field Marshal Montgomery, Churchill is reluctant to embark on the large-scale campaign, one that the entire war effort hinges upon. Much troubled, Churchill receives support and devotion from his wife, the brilliant and unflappable Clementine Churchill (Miranda Richardson.) With strength and shrewdness, “Clemmie” halts Winston’s, collapse and inspires him on to greatness.
