Alberto and Ricardo travelled to Misrata in a rebel-sponsored supply boat from Malta. They arrived in the city at the height of the siege and joined a group of rebel fighters. This film follows their story.
We see young rebel fighters returning to their homes at the end of their "shift" on the front-line and hear them talk of their lives before the revolution and their hopes for the future. We see what happens when a group of young office workers and shop workers become a fighting unit. And we see the total chaos of battle. More: rorypecktrust.org/alberto-arce-ricardo-garcia-vilanova
