Early in WWII, Churchill orders his new secret spy agency – The Special Operations Executive – to recruit and train women as spies to aid Britain’s war effort. Their mission: to conduct sabotage and build a resistance. ‘Spymistress’ Vera Atkins, a Jewish Romanian immigrant, recruits two unexpected candidates, Virginia Hall, an ambitious American with a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan, a Muslim pacifist. Together, these women help to undermine the Nazi regime in France, leaving an unmistakable legacy in their wake.
