1976, the Basque Country: under threat from a growing all-out strike amongst the factories of Vitoria, a dying fascist state orders the police to open fire on a peaceful assembly in a church during a general strike of the whole city, murdering 5 workers and seriously wounding over 100. 38 years on, no-one has been brought to justice for the cowardly attack on one of the greatest rank and file movements ever seen.
