Set during World War II, BOMB GIRLS tells the remarkable stories of women who risked their lives in a munitions factory, building bombs for the European front. Liberated from social and cultural restrictions, they embrace their newfound freedom, changing their lives — and the world around them — forever.
It’s the early 1940s and America has finally entered the war – but even so, the Axis Powers are still winning every major battle. Canada is beginning to deeply feel the price of combat, complete with casualty lists, rationing, hidden foes, unholy alliances, and the ever-present danger of explosives. Yet at the same time, the women and men of Victory Munitions find ways to flourish under adversity, to defiantly live in joy, to forge unexpected bonds of friendship and love. In embracing risk, they find unexpected rewards and adventure. While they always know who they are fighting…they’re constantly surprised to find who’s standing by their side.
BOMB GIRLS stars Meg Tilly, Jodi Balfour, Charlotte Hegele, Ali Liebert, Antonio Cupo, Sebastian Pigott, Anastasia Phillips, Michael Seater, Peter Outerbridge and Richard Fitzpatrick

It is the Spring of 1943 and the Battle for the Atlantic rages as an Axis victory seems inevitable. German U–boats patrol the ocean picking off ships, destroying much needed supplies and inflicting heavy casualties. The one hope the Allies have – production of newly developed sonar equipment – is moved to Victory Munitions when the British factories are bombed. Under the increased pressure to turn out more bombs, as well as work on the new secret sonar line, the women of Vic Mu – Gladys, Lorna, Kate, Betty and Vera – band together in a tight bond of support and friendship. Then, in the darkest hour of the war, a new and disturbing menace appears – a saboteur among the factory workers.
Bomb Girl Gladys Witham, a fiery young woman from privilege, is covertly recruited by Allied Intelligence to find the traitor on the new line. But she must spy on her best friends, co–workers and fellow agents, calling into question everyone and everything she has come to trust. Sworn to secrecy, how can she reach out to her friends for help? And without them, how will she find the traitor?
