This film explores the impact of censorship and repression during the Spanish Civil War. An American reporter and local censor fight to lift restrictions on the press that suppress the impact of the war on civilians as well as Basque resistance. When Germans bomb the city of Guernica on behalf of Franco, exposing war crimes becomes a vital weapon in the war against fascism.
