The film begins with a shot of the Acropolis in the afternoon and a snapshot of the deserted Irodou Attikou street, where a policeman is seen holding a rifle. These shots are likely to have been filmed in the afternoon of November 16, 1973.
We then see footage from Syntagma Square on the morning of November 17th, following the suppression of the Polytechnic Uprising by the military dictatorship, the so-called "Junta of Colonels".
Footage from the inside of a moving car on Amalias Avenue where we see many tanks (M48) with soldiers.
Footage from the Syntagma Square. We watch armored personnel vehicles with many armed soldiers laughing sitting on top. More tanks in view.
The shots end with a night view of the Parliament building.
At the end of the film there is footage taken from the television showing the events of the Polytechnic Uprising. Black and white footage from the events of the night filmed by the Dutch press. Footage from student's interviews and march on the street. Shots from the night of the police assault and at the end footage from the empty Polytechneio the day after the events.
