The incredible true story of the Scots who managed to ground half of Chile’s Air Force, from the other side of the world. In 1974 a group of workers at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out repairs on engines for Hawker Hunter planes, which had been used during the brutal military coup. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew what impact they had. With unprecedented access, this documentary also details the horrors of the Pinochet years, meets survivors of the period, and hears the Chilean side of the story.
