There is an orphanage in Kent, a small town in the southeast of war-devastated England that houses a remarkable group of boys. The year is 1940, and six tenacious rejected orphan boys decide to help on the homefront by forming their own motley boy scout troop. One night, against all the odds, the boys of St. Michael manage to shoot down an attacking German dive bomber, in the midst of an air raid, with an unmanned anti-aircraft gun. Their quick-witted acts of bravery quickly made its way to the ears of the Boy Scouts founder, Lord Baden-Powell, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and all the way up to British parliament to King Henry VI. These once boy scout outcasts, capture the attention of a newly formed branch of Special Operations, who want to recruit them to go behind enemy lines in Nazi Germany on a perilous covert mission. The scouts of St. Michael must complete an onerous training while meeting soon to be heroes and classified inventors as they bravely prepare for the dangers to come.
