Resistance is a 2011 Welsh film based on the novel of the same name by Owen Sheers.

After all the women in a remote Welsh town awaken to find their husbands have left to serve in the covert British Resistance, German occupiers arrive in this alternate-reality thriller set in 1944 where D-Day has failed. Wales and the United Kingdom have been invaded by Nazi Germany. Facing a harsh winter, the women and soldiers find they must cooperate with one another to survive.
