In the beginning of WWII, with Britain becoming desperate, Churchill orders his new spy agency –“SOE” – to recruit and train women as spies. The spies, referred to by The Irish Times as “Churchill’s wonder women,” had a daunting mission: conduct sabotage and build a resistance. SOE’s “Spymistress,” Vera Atkins (Stana Katic) recruits two unusual candidates: Virginia Hall (Thomas), an ambitious American with a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan (played by Radhika Apte), a Muslim pacifist. Together, these women help to undermine the Nazi regime in France, leaving an unmistakable legacy in their wake. Inspired by true stories, this original screenplay draws on various “spy files”, and as well as interviews with living relatives and friends.
