Synopsis

Based on years of dedicated historical research, this World War Two-set film focuses on the important women who were recruited by Winston Churchill as he formed a new spy agency – the Special Operations Executive (SEO). Known as “the spymistress”, Vera Atkins seeks out two unusual but dedicated candidates for the mission to undermine and destroy the Nazi regime; Virginia is an American who, despite her wooden leg, is entirely focused on helping win the war by any means possible and Noor is a Indian Muslim pacifist seeking peace throughout the world. Together, the three of them will significantly impact the outcome of history. Led by a primary creative crew of women, this is a film which aims to rediscover a portion of history that has been neutered over time and celebrate those who deserve undue credit for putting themselves in danger for the greater good.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
