As Germany was threatening to become the world's most powerful nation, it became clear that England would have to act to save Europe from the Nazi threat. Winston Churchill is widely recognized as the man who led England in this charge, but the prominent politician and energizing speaker had to pull himself up from a low point to lead his compatriots. Churchill was in the midst of a marital crisis, had lost his family fortune, and was struggling through a morbid depression. Battling his own demons, he was able to stand up and loudly warn about the Nazi party's intentions and actions. This made-for-cable feature stars Albert Finney as the defiant Churchill, remaking a 1974 film of the same name starring Richard Burton.
