1943, and five hardened criminals are sent to the Balkans, to convince an Italian general to rally the partisans against the Nazis. Cue stuff blowing up, monks carrying machine guns, and Mickey Rooney's Irish accent!

Time to fall in! 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
