The film is based on Ben Macintyre’s book of the same name which describes the true story of the extraordinary plan to deceive the Germans in the Second World War. It is set in 1943 as the Allies are determined to launch an all-out assault on Fortress Europe. But they face an impossible challenge – to protect a massive invasion force from entrenched German firepower and avert a potential massacre. The film had its world premiere at the 2021 British Film Festival in Australia and was released in the United Kingdom on 15 April 2022.
