Synopsis


D-DAY, June 5, 1944.


350,000 lives depend on the most important weather forecast of all time.

Pressure, the acclaimed play by David Haig, is the remarkable real-life tale of two warring Allied meteorologists tasked with predicting the weather conditions for the D Day landings.

72 hours prior to the D Day landings, Scottish meteorologist, Group Captain James Stagg, advises General Eisenhower on the weather conditions likely to prevail when 350,000 troops are to be sent across the Channel in Operation Overlord.


With Stagg predicting severe storms and Irving P. Krick - Hollywood's meteorological movie consultant - predicting beautiful weather, the future of Britain, Europe and the United States rests on one single forecast.
