The extraordinary true story of an unlikely friendship that occurred towards the end of Queen Victoria’s rule. When Abdul Karim, a young employee of the crown, travels from India to participate in Queen Victoria’s jubilee, he is surprised to find himself acting as her personal assistant. As the weight of such a long rule weighs on Victoria’s shoulders, she finds herself confiding in Abdul, and the two characters form a strong bond of loyalty and friendship, a bond which those around her will stop at nothing to destroy.

March 1947. After 300 years of English rule, the Viceroy’s House in Delhi opens its doors for one last time to welcome in grand style Lord Mountbatten and his family.
Grandson of the Queen, and nominated as the final Viceroy of India, Richard “Dickie” Mountbatten faces the daunting task of preparing the vast country for independence. But the task is even far more complicated than initially thought… After many negotiations with individuals such as Nehru, Gandhi, and Jinnah, and disturbed by the violent religious conflict underpinning the dialogue, he will have no choice but to split India in 2 and create the nation-state of Pakistan. Whilst this is going on, we follow two young adults, Jeet and Anila, servants of the palace and on either side of the religious divide, as the decisions taken by politicians encroach on their private lives. Lord Mountbatten’s decision will provoke one of the largest migrations of peoples in history, its consequences still being felt today.

A brilliant politician full of nerve, Winston Churchill stands out as one of the pillars of the British parliament. But, at 65 years of age, his candidacy for Prime Minister seems unlikely. Regardless, he is nominated as a matter of urgency on the 10th of May 1940, after Neville Chamberlain announces his retirement, and in the dramatic context of the fall of neighbouring Allied countries to the Nazi Reich, as well as 200,000 British troops stranded in Dunkirk.
Whilst the possibility of a German invasion draws ever closer, Churchill is informed that his King, George VI, remains very sceptical of his ability to resolve this crisis. Churchill is then faced with a seemingly insurmountable dilemma: negotiate a peace treaty with Nazi Germany and spare the British people what appears to be a grim fate, or mobilise the country and fight till the bitter end.
With the support of Clementine, his wife of 31 years, he turns to the British public to find the strength to hold strong and fight to defend the ideals, the independence, and the freedom of his country. With his words as his sword, and his tireless secretary as his rock, Winston Churchill must write the speech to lift the nation and change the course of history.
