In a small Scottish town in 1974, factory workers refuse to carry out repairs on warplane engines in an act of solidarity against the violent military coup in Chile. Four years pass then the engines mysteriously disappear in the middle of the night.
Forty years later they re-unite to look back on what was gained and what was lost.
Released for free on 9/11 2016 for the 40th anniversary. French, English, Spanish, Italian subtitles available. (Choose CC caption button)
