World Première

‘I know it gets tense the nearer we get to combat. And I know you lassies haven’t had face to face with the enemy yet.’

Kate Bowen’s taut thriller features the first generation of British women in close combat roles.

Privates Finlay and Cormack - holed up on a military base in the heat; waiting, frustrated. Then a new arrival creates new problems. Captain Sands - she’s interrogated hostile men the world over. But you never stop having to prove yourself.
