It’s summer 1939, and Thomas Miller (Eddie Izzard) has taken on a controversial role teaching English to the daughters of high-ranking Nazis at the Augusta-Victoria College – a finishing school on the south coast of England.
Despite the storm clouds forming across Europe, the girls continue to learn deportment, Shakespeare, fitness, and how to be a faithful member of Hitler’s League of German Girls. Under the watchful eye of their headmistress Miss Rocholl (Judi Dench), the girls practice their English and learn how to represent the ideal of German womanhood.
When the body of a former teacher is discovered, it triggers a sequence of deadly events, and the girls and Miss Rocholl discover a world where loyalty is more important than truth. It also leaves Thomas running from the police with the threat of being hanged for murder.
It is Six Minutes to Midnight and can Thomas exonerate himself in time and save the hearts and minds of his students from the grip of Hitler?
