The present bio-drama features Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) and the D-Day invasion of 1944, which triggered World War II in Europe. We are in June 1944. Allied forces are at a crucial point: a massive army is secretly assembled on the southern coast of Britain, ready to conquer the Nazi occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Behind the iconic figure and patriotic speeches, there is a man who faced political ridicule, military failure and speech impediment. An impulsive, sometimes aggressive, fearful and obsessive personality, to repeat his disastrous command of mass slaughter in 1915 when hundreds of thousands of young men were massacred on the beaches of Gallipoli. Obsessed with the accomplishment of historical grandeur: his destiny, exhausted by years of war and depressed, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who resisted Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. If D-Day landings fail, he is terrified to be remembered as an army of massacres. Political opponents shoved their knives. General Eisenhower and Feldmarsal Montgomery are increasingly frustrated with Churchill’s attempts to stop them.
