'Lancaster Skies' is a loving homage to the classic British war films of the 1940's and 50's. This period piece is set during the Second World War and it tells the story of Douglas Miller, a broken, solitary, former Spitfire ace pilot and one of the few survivors of the Battle of Britain. After the battle, a broken Douglas is given a new mission as he is transferred to the Bomber Command. Once there, he is determined to take the war to the skies over Nazi Germany. Douglas must take the place of a Lancaster Bomber crew's cherished and respected skipper, who was killed in action. With the crew against him, he must gain their trust and overcome his past to become the leader they so desperately need.
