Nae Pasaran

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 until the engines mysteriously disappear in the middle of the night. Forty years later the workers re-unite to look back on what was gained and what was lost.
