With London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole is hired by the British Ministry as a "slop" scriptwriter charged with bringing "a woman's touch" to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by a dashing movie producer whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin's artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen. A true story, this is a delightfully witty and nimble movie within a movie.
