Wednesday, November 6th of 1985 at 11:40 a.m., a command of the guerrilla group M-19 broke violently into the Palace of Justice of its country. The attack took place in downtown Bogota, just 100 metres of the Palace of Nariño, government headquarters and residence of the President of the Republic, Belisario Betancur. The first shot was the beginning of one of the most cruel and violent episodes of Colombian history, which would finish after 28 hours with more than 100 deaths between citizens, military and guerrilla, 12 missing and almost the complete destruction of the main branch of justice in Colombia. Twenty five years after the holocaust, the events are still tinged with mystery and darkness.
This documentary reconstructs the events of that fatal day and contains valuable testimonies of who survived the catastrophe to analyse what happened and especially…why it happened.
