In this WWII drama, a young woman arrives too late to save her archaeologist father from the Nazi forces invading Crete. She is helped by an all-female guerrilla force who try to help her get back to England. After an escape attempt fails, she stays on to help the force, whose leader she falls in love with. The title comes into play during the film's climax, when the force takes off their uniforms and skin-dives under a docked Nazi munitions ship in order to blow it up.
