The Proud and Damned tells the story of five Confederate veterans, led by Sgt. Will Hansen. Shaped by their experiences in the Civil War, their only skills are mercenary and they head south of the border to ply their trade. Soon they find themselves engaged in a struggle between a military dictator and the people of a small village, in which they must choose between personal redemption and individual ruin. Highly charged and atmospheric, The Proud and Damned also offers a great Spanish-influenced musical score, with one song written and performed by some of the stars.
