The film is set in a small Italian town in 1922, where a local group of Fascist blackshirts battle against rival Socialists, who've called a strike at the hospital. Although intended as sympathetic to the regime, and the methods by which it came to power, the film was not popular with the Fascist hierarchy, who felt its portrayal of violence undermined the respectable image the party was now trying to cultivate.

DVD-R is in Italian with switchable English and Spanish subtitles. Approx. 83 min.  See film sample for audio and video quality!
