Synopsis

Set during the summer months of 1953, Churchill - during his second tenure as prime minister and in his late 70s - suffers a life-threatening stroke, which is kept secret from the world. Told from the viewpoint of Churchill's young nurse, Millie Appleyard, the drama follows the leader's battle to recover as his long-suffering wife Clemmie desperately hopes the stroke will force him to retire while his political friends and foes plot over who will succeed him. Meanwhile his adult children descend on Chartwell, unsure if he will pull through, as tensions within his family begin to surface.
