Synopsis

How was the operation against the newspaper Euskaldunon Egunkaria orchestrated? Why did the State decide to act against it? What was the aim of the arrest, torture and public humiliation of well-known and prestigious members of the Basque cultural movement? Why did the Guardia Civil close down the sole newspaper in Basque?

This documentary seeks to answer these questions by focusing on several key factors of the time. This film is the result of an in-depth investigation that will reveal points of view and data unknown until now, thanks to the testimonies of those who experienced the events at first hand and to the unpublished images extracted from the archives of Egunkaria itself.
