The 1972 Munich Olympics were billed as the ‘Olympics of Peace and Joy’ but became the Olympics of terror. An extreme Palestinian group called Black September held 11 Israeli athletes hostage in the Olympic village while the world looked on, incredulous. Using extraordinary archive footage including the only surviving member of the Black September group, the film tells the dramatic story of what happened during those 21 hours in Munich.
