Synopsis

Kent, 1940.
 
Our heroes, a group of villagers from a quiet part of the English South Coast, seem blissfully unaware of the impending doom that sits across the Channel. Chris, a young farm worker, dreams of the chance to join the army and fight in exciting new lands rather than be stuck in the slow paced village life he has grown up in. His chance comes when the three top Nazis, the enormous Goering, the malnourished Goebbels and the scarily camp Himmler hatch a plan to invade England by drilling under the English Channel and into the heart of London.

With the entire British army stuck in Dunkirk and no military support to defend the country, Churchill issues a final radio broadcast from his bunker in Downing Street – a cry for help. After hearing the broadcast, Chris rallies the reluctant villagers together demanding that they help Churchill.

Meanwhile, under Churchillʼs orders, the rest of the country are amassing at Hadrianʼs Wall - the final line of defense for England.

Can the nation unite in time to make one last stand against the Nazi forces?
