The film is named after a city in Libya. It is one of the most famous war films from Mussolini's Italy. Released in 1942 and directed by Goffredo Alessandrini, it is about a group of Italians who are under siege by the British in Libya. The situation is hopeless for the Italians and it is clear that they will lose.

The propaganda was intended to give a patriotic message to the Italians -- the worst days of the war were approaching, and that the right thing to do is to remain calm and dignified. There is also a feeling of sacrifice for the motherland in the face of overwhelming odds.
