What is Midway about?

The film follows the story of US Navy sailors and aviators who persevered through the Battle of Midway, a turning point in the Pacific Theater of World War II.
The film follows two threads; one centered on naval aviator Ensign Dick Best (Ed Skrein) and the Air Group (CAG) of the carrier Enterprise, and the other on intelligence officer Edwin T. Layton.
The film starts with the US Naval attachΓ© in Tokyo and his counterpart discussing the US and Japanese positions in the Pacific Ocean during a state function, December 1937, and then goes on briefly to show the Attack on Pearl Harbor (December 1941). It then shows the Doolittle Raid (April 1942), and then goes on briefly to mention the Battle of the Coral Sea (May 1942). It then describes the planning for the Battle of Midway (June 1942), depicting the creation of a complicated battle plan. Joseph Rochefort and his cryptology team begin intercepting messages concerning a location the Japanese identify as "AF". Layton speaks with Admiral Chester Nimitz, who informs him that Washington believes "AF" to be a target in the Aleutians. Layton disagrees, believing the intended target to be Midway Atoll. After meeting with Rochefort, Nimitz instructs the team to find a way to definitively prove that "AF" is Midway. After Layton instructs Midway to telegraph in the clear (unencrypted) that they are suffering a water shortage, cryptologists working for Rochefort intercept Japanese communications concerning water shortages on "AF" - thus confirming that "AF" is Midway. In preparation for an ambush of the Japanese fleet, Nimitz orders carriers Hornet and Enterprise recalled from the Coral Sea and demands that the damaged Yorktown be made ready for combat operations. The gamble pays off and all four of the Japanese carriers are destroyed in the battle of Midway.
