Based on actual accounts, this film portrays the days and hours before and during the invasion of the Falkland Islands by Argentina, which eventually lead to the Falklands War. As the Argentine forces land on the main island and make their way towards Government House, the British Royal Marines batten down the hatches and prepare to defend Governer Rex Hunt, his family and their fellow islanders from the invaders.

Did You Know?
The non-speaking roles of some of the Argentinian marines were played by the crew of a British round-the-world yacht which just happened to be in Port Stanley harbour at the time of filming. This was because the producers could not find an adequate number of resident Falkland Islanders willing to play Argentinian soldiers. See more
