Synopsis

Ken Loach's moving story of the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s. The fascist General Franco is trying to take control of the country from the recently elected democratic government and the republican loyalists form whatever army they can to stop the uprising. In Liverpool, David, an unemployed man, attends a republican rally against the uprising and eventually heads for Spain as a volunteer. He joins an English speaking section of the militia and is forced to learn all about survival in this brutal war.
