1940, London, the Blitz. With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits and inspire America to join the war.

Partnered alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley (Sam Claflin) and eccentric actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), the trio set off to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American population.

Based on Lissa Evans’ novel Their Finest Hour and a Half, Scherfig's film is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war.
