About the Show

2015

When a rural English town finds itself on the verge of World War II, two powerful women struggle to put aside their differences in The Women’s Institute and join forces amidst the chaos and uncertainty of wartime. It will take calm, fortitude, and creativity to bring the diverse women of the village together, and to help the community survive the harrowing years to come. Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey) and Francesca Annis (Reckless, Cranford) star in this heartwarming story of courage, friendship, and holding onto light in our darkest moments.
