Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Against incredible odds, first-time Italian filmmaker Franco Bottari brought this taut political drama to the screen. The German ambassador (Franz von Treuberg) to a South American country has been kidnapped by revolutionaries. The film examines the shifting sands of the negotiations and government decisions. The revolutionaries are demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. The government, on the other hand, is contemplating ways to exterminate the revolutionaries and their movement under the pretext of negotiating for the Ambassador's release.
