Synopsis

Spain, 1981. After almost 40 years living under a military dictatorship, the Spanish people thought the battle for democracy had finally been won. But there would be one more major obstacle to overcome on the road to a truly democratic State. On the 23rd February, 1981, the Congress of Deputies, with 350 Members of Parliament inside, was stormed by a group of 200 armed soldiers determined to put an end to the young Republic.
