Synopsis: The Rock of Gibraltar has been at the centre of a fiercely contested diplomatic dispute that has stretched over the centuries. For the past 300 years Spain has fought to regain this tiny British territory but in true David and Goliath style, the small community on the rock has fought back, choosing instead to remain British. In the summer of 2010, the director Ana Garcia returned home to Gibraltar to get married. Coming back to the most unique of British territories, she finds herself compelled to find out more about the history of her family and her birthplace. As she prepares for her wedding, we are taken on a very personal journey that uncovers the inspiring story of how a small community has fought for its homeland and identity. At times funny, at times tragic, this is a surprising tale of struggle and victory in the name of home and family.

Hello. Are you happy?

What is that question?

Everything is going well, yeah. Thank you.


Why are you looking at me like that?

I have the impression that I know you start.

- Yes.

It's all right.

I can't pay off the boat.

That doesn't work anymore.

The interest rate is rising rapidly.

I can't get out of the harbor.

- And the bar?

- That is so.

Every week a bankruptcy.

So it's not so bad.

It's okay. I'm a big boy.

Champagne isn't their thing.

There's Daddy.

We just woke up.

- Do you want daddy's arms?

- Give her.

Come to daddy, girl.

The figures don't speak in my favor.

Indeed, we have tax problems.

With this, I can loan providers

pay off and we can continue.

Mr. Duval, ask a loan of 100,000 francs


I no longer go on.

That should the board decide.

Like I said 100,000 impossible.

Marc, I'm expecting a call.

Can you "take him if I'm not there?

- That would be nice.

- Yes.

- Hello

- Mr. Duval

Who is this?

- Redjani Belimane French customs?

Can we meet?

Are you still - Yes

I said customs, tax authorities don't

What does that?

- no idea? You may say

- There's nothing to say

- Good

- Let's see each other

- What?

Our mutual friend said,

you might have interested

What is this about?

At five o'clock in the square

Peunte Mayorga


Can you take the rubbish out?


- What about that phone call?

- A lifebuoy.

Who is Belimani?

What does he want from me?

He is a customs agent.

Type the best boy in the class.

He makes the operations in the Atlantic Ocean.

When you see him?


I'll go with you.

A customs agent?

Can I see your papers?

If you think I believe

everything he says...

A dormant shipping.

A bankruptcy filing.

Bailiffs and banks.

I understand why you went to Gibraltar.

Only are you left with

money that the bank is.

- What do you want?

- There are many people in your bar.


- Then you hear a thing.

- You mean about drug trafficking?

Yes, for example.

- Sorry, but I'm not a snitch.

- We call that an informant.

Why should I?

What I shoot it on?

You will receive no salary, but

a premium for each load.

- What's that?

- 10 percent of everything we catch.

Enough to pay the debts

of the bar and the boat.

That sounds like the casino.

The higher the stakes, the more we win.

That you risk,

if you hope to become rich.

Do you understand?


- Can I think about?

- Until tomorrow.

Then you need to decide.

This is my number.

What did you saddled me?

- That's up to you to decide.

Those boxes are full of cartons of cigarettes.

The boys get them twice a week.

Then they distribute the goods

along the coast.

And what do the cops?

You know where we are.

In Gibraltar or in Spain.

The English and Spanish have

not feel that schooling Irish.

So they close their eyes to smuggling.

I light morning anchor.

Whether you inform the customs.

Or do like those poor wretches.

But never quite pick a side.

Always stay between the two.

Then you avoid being sacrificed.

Shall we?

I may have found a solution.
