Blood and Glory (Afikaans title: Modder en Bloed)).
Despite the official English title, it more accurately translates as "Mud and Blood".
A mixture of war movie, prison movie and sport's movie.
The inmates of an Afrikaner concentration camp on the prison island of St. Helena during the Anglo-Boer War have to defeat their British captors
during a rugby match.
A sport then unknown to the Boers, but luckily they have an Irish prisoner among them (many came to fight with the Boers, especially Irishmen, Germans
and Russians) who trains the starving men into shape.
