This documentary presents the massacre of Israeli athletes by Palestinian terrorists during the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Existing footage and interviews emphasize the lack of security, the botched rescue mission, and the preparation of the terrorists. It features the only known interview with Jamal Al-Gashey, the only surviving terrorist.
