In an isolated and breath-taking landscape the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team (CMRT), currently led by Willie Anderson, protect those who come to grief on the dangerous landscape and changeable weather in The Scottish Highlands.
Unlike other emergency services in Scotland, the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team is operated by unpaid civilians who rely on funding from the police and public donations, to carry out their life saving work. All acknowledge that without risk, discovery is impossible.
'The Happy Warriors' is a portrait of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team. A film about the individual rescuers and what it means to be a volunteer in mountain rescue. Testimony of team members past and present will provide an insight into their world as the story of a rescue unfolds on screen.
Director: Glen Travis (Berkhamsted)
