Synopsis:

1944, Nazi Occupied France. With significant victories for both the Allies and the Axis, the outcome of this devastating conflict remains uncertain. To break this stalemate, the Allies unleash “Operation Overlord”. On the eve of the Battle of Normandy, Canadian soldier Jessica Keller is dispatched behind enemy lines by the Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare; a secret British organization devoted to espionage and sabotage. Her mission? To secretly meet with an all-female resistance team fighting to liberate France; and hopefully save her brothers from service on the front line. But a simple mission of rendezvous quickly spirals out of control and before she knows it, Jessica and this rag tag group of saboteurs find themselves at the center of a conflict that could determine the course of the entire war.
