It was in East Kilbride, where a group of workers at the Rolls-Royce factory showed their support for the people of Chile, by refusing to carry out vital repairs to engines for Chilean Air Force Hawker Hunter planes - used during the brutal military coup in September 1973. The boycott became a minor cause célèbre and endured for four years, until one night in 1978… the engines mysteriously disappeared.
Revisiting these brave men to dissect their incredible story of solidarity, Sierra creates an emotional, joyous portrait of morals and taking action, and how the stand taken by the charismatic Bob Fulton & his colleagues had such devastating effects on Pinochet on the other side of the world.
