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

Great story of heroic people in history!
How could everyone rate this so little? The actors were amazing, the filming, the script: it was wonderful! Those people gave their lives! More than any of these bad reviewer could give. I loved this movie. It was beautiful! Watch this and don't let the low rating turn you away.
