In the beginning of WWII, with Britain becoming desperate, Churchill orders his new spy agency -- the Special Operations Executive (SOE) -- to recruit and train women as spies. Their daunting mission: conduct sabotage and build a resistance. SOE's "spymistress," Vera Atkins (Stana Katic), recruits two unusual candidates: Virginia Hall (Sarah Megan Thomas), an ambitious American with a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan (Radhika Atpe), a Muslim pacifist. Together, these women help to undermine the Nazi regime in France, leaving an unmistakable legacy in their wake. Inspired by true stories.Written by

After shooting, lead actress Sarah Megan Thomas' left Achilles Tendon ruptured. The rupture occurred due to complications of playing Virginia Hall on screen (a historical character with a wooden left leg). Ms. Thomas needed surgery and extensive rehab to repair her Achilles. See more »
I love Stana Katic but she can't make this film about the brave female spy's of the SOE better than "Female Agents" which has the near identical plot. Here, the main agent Sarah Thomas is heroic beyond words But in "Female Agents" Sophie Marceau is just outstanding in her role as the leader of a team dropped into France. I thought "Female Agent's" was much grittier, more suspenseful, and satisfying.
