Based on actual accounts, this film portrays the days and hours before and during the invasion of the Falkland Islands by Argentina, which eventually lead to the Falklands War. As the Argentine forces land on the main island and make their way towards Government House, the British Royal Marines batten down the hatches and prepare to defend Governer Rex Hunt, his family and their fellow islanders from the invaders.

During the initial Argentine attack on Government House the British defenders are alerted by the geese keep in the yard. This echoes the Battle of the Allia in 390 BCE when the Romans were similarly warned by geese of a Gaulish attack. See more
