Synopsis

Following the successful invasion of Britain by Hitler’s troops in 1944, a battle-weary Wehrmacht platoon is despatched to the Welsh borders to patrol a small village. With the advance of the invaders, the local menfolk have melted into the mountains leaving their wives, mothers and daughters behind. Isolated in this women-centric community the soldiers – led by the sympathetic Albrecht (Tom Wlaschiha) – grow to value their distance from the fighting. Michael Sheen co-stars in an atmospheric drama that sees bitter opponents forced into uneasy cohabitation.
