A FIGHTING CHANCE – A SCREENPLAY ABOUT THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR

A Fighting Chance relates a British soldier’s coming of age through his experiences fighting with the International Brigades during the Spanish Civil War. After witnessing both cruelty and kindness in his interactions with Republican and Nationalist supporters, Jim comes to realize that war and politics are far more complicated than he had ever imagined.
