On September 6th, 1972, eight Palestinian freedom fighters attacked the Olympia Village in Munich, taking 11 Israeli sportsmen hostage. The operation ended when German security officers opened fire, killing 5 of the Palestinian men and the 11 Israelis. Why was this operation carried out? This film will be the first Palestinian documentary about this event, bringing to light many new facts, documents and people involved.
