It’s 1962, and with the arms race and space race at full throttle, pressure is mounting for the new ruler Henry and his cabinet cronies to do something. Well…anything, really. After the monarch of France insults him, power hungry Henry leaps into war (with some prodding from his “advisors”). Outnumbered and facing sure disaster, Henry’s political instinct kicks in to gamble on one last epic fight. "Henry V" exposes the behind the scenes maneuverings of a government’s war machine.
