Official Plot Synopsis:
On the South Coast of England, Chris, a young farm worker, dreams of the chance to join the army and fight in exciting new lands. His chance comes when the three top Nazi leaders, the enormous Goering, the malnourished Goebbels and the scarily campy Himmler, hatch a plan to invade England by drilling under the English Channel and into the heart of London. With the entire British army stuck in Dunkirk and no military support to defend the country, Churchill issues a final radio broadcast from his bunker in Downing Street – a cry for help.
