Untitled Simon Weston Biopic

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Biopic of Simon Weston, the British army veteran who endured severe burns during the Falklands War.
During the Falklands War in 1982 Weston was a young soldier on the ship RFA Sir Galahad when an Argentine Skyhawk dropped a 500lb bomb, killing most of his platoon. His fight for survival and recovery took him to a dark abyss.
Weston came back from the brink of death to rebuild his life. He wrote best-selling autobiographies, campaigned tirelessly for charity and is regarded by many as a symbol of Britain’s war in the Falklands.
