Storyline

You are Lacey Biggins, a peppy showgirl who is doing her best to bring cheer to the people of London during the dark times of WWII. You have spent the past 7 months singing and dancing your way across London; entertaining exhausted troops who have lost their comrades, and trying to drown out the sound of bombs for those hidden in shelters. 

But even at such a dramatic time, you never imagined that you’d become entangled in an espionage plot which could ultimately decide London’s fate!
