Se déroulant entre le 9 mai 1940 (la veille de l’offensive allemande) et début juin 1940, le film se focalise sur le personnage de Churchill et son entourage, en partie par l'œil de sa nouvelle secrétaire privée , chargée de taper télégrammes et courriers. D'abord pressenti comme prochain Premier ministre, Churchill se heurte à une opposition favorable à des pourparlers de paix (en premier Lord Halifax et Chamberlain). Puis on le suit à la tête du gouvernement, dans les affres de la douleur des choix difficiles. Notamment lorsque la guerre éclair refoule les 300 000 hommes de l'armée britannique à Dunkerque, le dos à la mer. Churchill ordonne le sacrifice d'une unité chargée d'une diversion (30e brigade motorisée commandée par le brigadier Nicholson à Calais) et la mobilisation des embarcations civiles pour secourir les armées française et anglaise encerclées à Dunkerque : c'est l'« opération Dynamo » qui débute le 26 mai.

Deborah Lipstadt, historienne américaine et auteur reconnue, enseigne l'histoire et la mémoire de la Shoah. Elle se voit confrontée à un écrivain extrémiste, avocat de thèses négationnistes sur le régime nazi, le Britannique David Irving, qui la met au défi de prouver l'existence de la Shoah. Deborah Lipstadt ayant dénoncé dans un livre les manipulations et les préjugés idéologiques de David Irving, celui-ci l'assigne en justice pour diffamation, en Grande-Bretagne. Elle se retrouve dans la situation incroyable de devoir prouver que ce qu'elle a écrit sur Irving est vrai et fondé, notamment qu'il ment sciemment en niant notamment l'existence des chambres à gaz. Comment, en restant dans les limites du droit, faire face à un négationniste prêt à toutes les bassesses pour obtenir gain de cause, et l'empêcher de profiter de cette tribune pour propager ses théories nauséabondes ?

The film intercuts the stories of two affairs: one a Victorian period drama involving the gentleman palaeontologist Charles Smithson and the complex and troubled Sarah Woodruff, "The French Lieutenant's Woman"; the other between the actors "Mike" and "Anna", playing the lead roles in a modern filming of the story. In both segments, Jeremy Irons and Meryl Streep play the lead roles, but in line with John Fowles' source novel having multiple endings, the two otherwise parallel stories have different outcomes.
