Description

"We in this quiet corner of England have suffered the loss of friends very dear to us. The homes of many of us have been destroyed, and the lives of young and old have been taken. There's scarcely a household that hasn't been struck to the heart. And why? Surely you must have asked yourselves this question? Why in all conscience should these be the ones to suffer?

"I shall tell you why. Because this is not only a war of soldiers in uniform. It is the war of the people, of all the people. And it must be fought not only on the battlefield but in the cities and in the villages, in the factories and on the farms, in the home and in the heart of every man, woman and child who loves freedom. This is the People's War. It is our war. We are the fighters. Fight it then. Fight it with all that is in us. And may God defend the right."

Quote from Mrs Miniver, a British film made in 1942.

September 1940, the village hall in Cropstone, Leicestershire. In the midst of the Blitz, England endures. The Ministry of Information Film Unit have sent a cast and crew to the heart of the countryside to make a wartime propaganda movie to keep up people’s spirits on the home front. Even in this quiet corner of England, we are all very much aware that no one is untouched by the current crisis, because It’s Everybody’s War.

The characters will be either residents of the village, evacuees, or newly arrives with the film crew. Expect intrigue, passion, petty rivalries, secrets and lies.
