In this celebration of Spanish nationalism, and an early example of Francoist Spain, a captain makes a last stand in a small village in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. Stationed in Baler on the island of Luzon, Captain Morenas takes precautionary measures to secure his forces in the town's church when he learns about a planned peasant uprising. He and his men defend their position for nearly a year and long after the war and Spanish control of the Philippines ceased.
