Scientist Dr Barnes Wallis believes WWII can be shortened by building bombs to destroy the Ruhr dams - thus paralysing the enemy?s industrial nerve centre. As permission is granted to manufacture the bombs, a special squadron is put together to carry out the raids on the dams. Led by dashing Air Ace Wing Commander Guy Gibson, the squadron begin intense training in order to master the modified bombers they will pilot in the raid. Unaware of their target until the day of their mission, the brave airmen set out on their dangerous and hazardous mission, which could change the course of the War.
