Between 1936 and 1939 several hundred Scottish men and women went to fight as volunteers on the side of the Spanish Republic against the fascist regimes then spreading throughout Europe. Interviewing one of the last surviving members of the Scottish International Brigades, this short documentary explores the legacy of this movement and their fight against fascism.
