The dark clouds of war are gathering across Europe and the brightest minds in Britain have been brought together in a grand manor on the Suffolk coast. These select few have been tasked by Churchill to develop, in utmost secrecy, an invention that will help win the war and alter the course of history.
In this tense atmosphere, an unlikely friendship develops between Vic, a brilliant but shy physicist, and Kathleen, a local girl helping her mother in the kitchens. Kath is keen to do her bit for the war effort so when Vic tells her they are recruiting women to operate his top secret system, she makes a choice that will change her life forever.
This gripping romantic drama is centred on real-life events at the top secret, wartime research station near Felixstowe. It tells the story of the people behind the discovery of radar.
