Jesús Galíndez was Basque and he fought in the Spanish Civil War among the Republicans (Republicans in the European form, not the American) against Franco. As a result of losing the war, Galíndez become an exile firstly in the Dominican Republic and eventually in New York where he was part of the C.I.A. Galíndez was (as the U.S. Government recognized) the best secret agent in Latinamerica working for the C.I.A. ... but one day in 1956 Galíndez was kidnapped in the very downtown of Manhattan and disappeared forever. This documentary is based in a wide range of testimonies of people who knew Galíndez, as well as prosecutor, investigators and former secret agents who took part in the trial to explain the Galíndez file.
Nowadays, the Galíndez File is still the most expensive investigation ever made for the F.B.I. (even more than the Kennedy one) and there's still thousands of documents kept as "Top secret" and not publicly known.
The only certain point about the file is that Rafael Léonidas Trujillo, the dictator of the Dominican Republic at the time, ordered to kill Galíndez... but maybe the game of interests of the U.S. Government led the C.I.A. and the F.B.I. to take part on the murder of Galíndez because Galíndez intended to involve the U.S. Government in the fall of Francisco Franco's fascist regime ... but Franco had become a barrier against communism and, you know, we're talking about the 50's.
