user submitted synopsis
It is 1944 and the Allies are preparing for their invasion into France. The Germans however have the upper hand with a major communications facility in Sainte Cecile. It is up to Felicity Clairet (a British agent) and other women to take this communications post down so that there will be little warning to the Germans about the invasion.
Based on true events, the "Jackdaws" was the name given to the women who worked for the Special Operations Executive of the British government. Fifty women worked undercover in France, of which 36 survived.
