Synopsis / Plot
Through documentary and fiction footage, the body of work of the New German Cinema offers a general view of Germany in the late 70's. A time marked by the left-wing terrorism of the Baader Meinhof group. With an aim to free three of their leaders in prison, the band kidnapped a businessman who they would later murder. After the suicide in jail of the three leaders, the German state was suspected of being the executioner of these killings: a possible crime of state which brought about tremendous polemics, questioning the system as well as the deep social fracture.
