British penal unit in the middle of the desert is the place where brutality and discipline are the only rules.

During the North African campaign 5 British soldiers are sent to a field punishment detention in the middle of the desert for sometimes trivial crimes, like petty theft. Here, using the heat, military drill and senseless brutality the guards and instructors are training them to be reinstated to the army. The hill was the ultimate punishment - big pile of sand and rocks that prisoners were running up and down with full kit in the heat of sun.

Film based on personal experience of Ray Rigby, who while serving as private in Africa was sent to such camp. It is the other face of brave British army in Africa - behind the front lines there were sadistic men in uniforms enjoying punishing and
humiliating soldiers. This film shows how the whole system of British army was not only allowing that, but was encouraging such practices.
