July 2001. 200,000 protesters, consisting mainly of anti-globalization activists and anarchists of the Black Bloc) try to prevent the G8 summit from taking place in Genoa. The authorities, determined not to let them achieve their aim, give a free hand to the anti-riot police in the matter of repression. The Police superintendent decides a nighttime raid upon the Diaz school, used as a sleeping quarter and a center for those providing media, medical, and legal support work. The film tells about the ordeal put through by all those who slept or worked there, courtesy of the barbarous Police forces, complete with furious baton attacks and shameless humiliation following arrests.

People need to understand that this is a *drama* not a documentary. Drama as in the dramatization. It was a terrible event in actuality, but this goes way overboard in depicting brutalization just for the shockfactor, of which there is plenty. It goes completely overboard. Actually, the filmmakers should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting what happened just to make a buck. It is very unfortunate that some ignorant people will assume that just because it is in a movie it is true. It is not. This film is a classic communist style "agitprop" film: agitation propaganda, made for the purpose of provoking the audience to action. Action in ignorance is as bad as no action. While people have a right to be outraged on the basis of an actual documentary or reading actual news accounts, this piece of fiction is not it.
