Into the storm official teaser trailer hd
The Second World War has recently ended in Europe, and the people of the United Kingdom are awaiting the results of the 1945 general election. During this time, Winston Churchill goes to France for a holiday with his wife Clemmie. Through a series of flashbacks, Churchill recalls some of his most glorious moments during the war, and the effect it had on their marriage.
Winston Churchill has made himself the minister of defence. Because night bombings on continental Europe has been ineffective, Arthur Harris urges Churchill to commence bombing German factories.
Into the Storm continues on from The Gathering Storm. It is set against the backdrop of World War II, and looks at how Churchill's success as a great wartime leader ultimately undermined his political career and threatened his marriage to "Clemmie" - Clementine Hozier.
