Storyline

May 23, 1981. A group of criminals tries to seize almost eight hundred million pesetas at the headquarters of the Central Bank of Barcelona, kidnapping people inside the building. While it is not at all clear who is behind the assault, the main suspects will be a radio broadcaster, a newspaper editor and a government deputy. Meanwhile, two journalists have picked up the rumor that something will happen in the city. A meeting of the extreme right, a committed photograph in the hands of a socialist politician, the pressure in the newspapers and the crime will mingle in the same period of time.
