"I lead from the front."

In Khartoum, General Gordon, a devout Christian and the ablest commander of his day, is besieged by the army of the Mahdi. Gordon courageously faces his end, guided by his faith in a war film that links the past and the present, the political and the spiritual. 

Written by BAFTA-winning writer/director Stuart Urban and read by Pip Torrens (The Crown, Poldark, Preacher).
