New spy agency –“SOE” gets orders from Churchill to recruit and train women as spies, in the beginning of WWII. The Irish Times referred to the spies as “Churchill’s wonder women,”. They had a daunting mission: conduct sabotage and build a resistance. Two unusual candidates were recruited by SOE’s “Spymistress,” Vera Atkins (Stana Katic). One, an ambitious American with a wooden leg, Virginia Hall (Thomas) and a Muslim pacifist, Noor Inayat Khan (Radhika Apte). Leaving an unmistakable legacy in their wake, these women together, help to undermine the Nazi regime in France. Interviews with living relatives and friends and various “spy files” contribute to the original screenplay of this true story inspired movie.
