Synopsis

1974, Scotland. Bob Fulton, a Rolls-Royce engine inspector, returns to his section, upset and anxious. He's just told his colleagues that a Chilean Air Force jet engine has arrived in the factory for maintenance and he's refusing to let it go through, in protest against the recent military coup of General Pinochet. He's seen the images of people packed into football stadiums and the Chilean Air Force jets bombing Santiago, and now one of the engines from those very same planes is right there, waiting for inspection.
An inspiring documentary about the men who grounded Pinochet’s air force.

There are some unexpectedly moving moments in an understated film that gets much of its charm from the down-to-earth decency of the characters. Wendy Ide - Observer
