This is a short film i'm making set in WW2 on a British Lancaster bomber.

Story basics

In April 1945, the Allies are making their final push into Europe. A British, seven-man crew
undertake a deadly bombing mission over the Polish port of Glydia under heavy flak and ground
attacks. Under increasing pressure, the crew make their target release the bombs, then turn to head home. On their way back they take terrible damage and lose 2 crew members, a 3rd is seriously injured,and 3 of their 4 engines as well as some of their weapon capabilities are lost. As they begin to close in on the Atlantic wall and the heavily defended coastal defenses that surround Nazi Germany, a German fighter plane catches up to them stopping their attempt to escape and seemingly, their chances of ever making it home.
