Based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway that was published in 1940. It follows the ideas and life of Robert Jordan, a character influenced by the reporter for the North American Newspaper Alliance in the Spanish Civil War that Hemingway was in. Robert Jordan travels all the way to Spain to confront the dictatorial government of Francisco Franco.

Jordan has been sent by a Russian Communist military commander to Spain to work with a group of mercenaries that will assist him in blowing up a bridge. During his stay there, Jordan meets a young Spanish woman by the name of Maria, whose life has been destroyed by the murder of her parents and the gang rape she went through by the Falangists during the beginning of the war. He falls in love with Maria, but has to endure many problems with Pablo, the Republican partisan leader, who feels it may be risky to follow through with their plan. Many soldiers die in the film and show the atrocity of civil war and the impact it has on people. Jordan is severely wounded, but that does not slow him down. He wants to kills as many enemy soldiers as he can and does his best to slow them down.
