When the Spanish Republic is declared in 1931, three brothers go separate ways. One, a priest, is killed by leftists. One, a member of the government, betrays his family's traditional ideals. The third fights on the side of Franco to defend them.
The film was re-release in July 3 1950 with a new title, "Espíritu de una raza", and six minutes less of footage. Since Spain was by then an US ally, Franco's censors decided to cut all the scenes containing fascist salutes and add some dialogues to underline the anti-communist sense of the movie, instead of its former totalitarian spirit.

Very interesting work to know the point of view of spanish national ideology. Franco supposedly wrote the script of this mediocre film. Indispensable to understand certain things of the Spanish Civil War.
