Details the role played by the Spanish and French governments, in fostering and supporting a wave of terrorist activity to suppress the ETA, the Basque Separatist movement. Following an attempted right-wing coup in 1981 that tried to topple Spain's new, democratically elected Socialist government, key Spanish government officials secretly formed the GAL, an organization whose purpose was to attack ETA using similar methods of violence and terror. After a pivotal meeting with then-President Francois Mitterrand, Spain received the support it needed when France agreed to assist the GAL in their operations. Concentrating on the French Basque country --a sanctuary for many of ETA's members-- GAL actions were directed by Spanish government officials, deploying hired mercenaries to carry out bombings, kidnappings and assassinations with the compliance and assistance of the French police. Through interviews with government officials, judicial officials and prosecutors, journalists, and the families of victims - and incorporating rare archival footage --the director conducts a methodical investigation into the Anti-Terrorist Liberation Group (GAL). The film includes important background information on the rise of ETA and the Basque Separatist movement, the social and political strains that led to the formation of the GAL, and eventually the developments that led to its fall.
