It is early May 1940. In London, the population, lulled into an atmosphere of false security, goes about its business as usual. Even the official war communiqués merely report activity on the front. But Charles Foreman, war correspondent, knows better. As the Battle of France takes a turn for the worse, he joins the Merchant Navy and volunteers for the greatest mission ever mounted, the evacuation of Dunkirk. Starring John Mills and Richard Attenborough.
