About This Show

An epic, intimate family saga, this is a show about our contested heritage and the shadow of Winston Churchill. At the height of the Blitz, Charlotte is in a passionate affair with a Spitfire pilot, fighting fascism in red lipstick and living each day like her last. Eighty years later, her granddaughter Becky is stuck in her hometown, cooking dinners for her dad and singing old songs at other people’s weddings, dreaming of a better time.The 1940s are more real to Becky than her life, but when a friend moves back to town, she’s forced to face the present. What happens when there’s no war left to fight?
