In October 1977, the Government granted an amnesty to the 16 prisioners accused of murdering three people and belonging to the terrorist organization ETA in 1970 at the trial which took place in the city of Burgos. The director of the film, Imanol Uribe, decided to offer an exceptional portrait of one of the most echoed episodes of Franco’s dictatorship by interviewing those people involved in the process. The highly sensitive nature of the theme endangered its first showing at the San Sebastian Festival and its screening in several movie theaters caused protests and threats from certain ultra-conservative sectors.
