Drama film on the fascist colonial mission in Libya, which exploits the thematic pattern, common to propaganda films, of a mediocre character, lacking in patriotic sentiment, who reawakens and becomes aware of his role and his duty. A weak official takes part in an expedition against Libyan rebels, in which his valiant captain is killed; this is the event which triggers his realization and change.
The film won the Mussolini cup for the best Italian film at the 1936 Mostra di Venezia. , The story was adapted from the French novel L'escadron Blanc by Peyré Joseph
