As 1973 winds down, Franco is still governing Spain with an iron hand. Opposition parties are forbidden; labor movements are repressed; and Basque nationalists are mercilessly hunted down. The caudillo is aging, though, and the continuity of the régime is in question. One man has the trust of Franco, enough authority and experience to assume the leadership, and an impeccable track record as to dealing with enemies of the State: admiral Carrero Blanco. For the embattled clandestine Basque organization ETA, Carrero Blanco must be brought down. Daring plans are made, requiring a meticulous execution...

Translation of the opening Spanish Intertitles: 

"Spain 1975.

Francisco Franco dies after a 40-year dictatorship. 40 years during which fascism locked up in Spanish jails over a million political prisoners and countless death sentences.

Now Spain takes its first steps along the path of democracy. Civil and political rights are restored to the Spaniards with freedom of speech, the press, and the vote. But two more years must pass before the last political prisoners are freed.

Many of them are Basque. For 40 years the Basques have fought alongside all those who struggled for liberty, because fascism was their common enemy. But the Basque problem is older and more complex. The basque people live within Spain's geographical border. They have their own culture, language and traditions. Above all, they are a people who claim recognition of their national identity."
