The trial of the Greek military Junta in 1974 is featured in this documentary that covers modern Greek politics from 1934 until the trial. Historical footage from newsreels, still photos, and audio recordings are used to show that several of the defense claims made by the militarists are simply false. With democracy still new at this time in Greece, filmmaker Theodossis Theodossopoulos is enthusiastically exercising his freedom to disagree in this work that exposes how the Colonels on trial methodically planned their take-over from the very beginning.
