Tagline: The story of an ordinary woman in an extraordinary time.

Plot: London, 1942.

The world is at war.

A seemingly chance encounter with a stranger on a train leads a young Scottish woman (CATE BLANCHETT) to consider enlisting in a special operation with the French Resistance. When her lover, an RAF pilot (RUPERT PENRY-JONES), is shot down in the line of duty, Charlotte joins the secret mission as a means to serve her country and find the man she loves.

Assuming a new identity, "Dominique" parachutes behind enemy lines in Southern France, where she rendezvous with Julien Levade (BILLY CRUDUP), the leader of the local resistance group. Posing as the new housekeeper for Julien's father (MICHAEL GAMBON), "Dominique" serves as a liaison between the British government and the resistance fighters, helping to thwart Nazi efforts to move munitions and abduct local Jews, while secretly attempting to learn the fate of her missing lover.

As the war escalates, Charlotte's resolve and commitment to Julien, their comrades and their cause deepens. A once rather ordinary woman, Charlotte involves herself in extraordinary acts of heroism, jeopardizing her own safety to protect those who cannot protect themselves. But when the Gestapo closes in and their mission is compromised, she and Julien are forced to take flight or risk capture and certain death.
