A group of former Spanish Foreign Legionnaires meet every week in a Barcelona suburb to parade and exercise and remember the good old days. In view of this excessive display of pride and patriotism the film crew concentrate on a few clear issues, small gestures and nuances – thus revealing much about the protagonists’ nostalgia for a heroic yesterday, much preferred to the unpleasantly complex and diverse today.
