It’s 1981 and Spanish Democracy has been in place for barely 3 years after almost 40 under the rule of a military dictatorship. On the 23rd February, a group of 200 armed soldiers, determined to restore their rule, storm the Congress of Deputies, kidnapping the 350 Members of Parliament inside. Chaos ensues as a warning shot is fired.
Outside the building, fear sets in when the only national TV station spreads the unsteady news. Terrified of being plunged back into a military dictatorship, people run home and wait with baited breath for any news from the TV and radio.
23-F is the story of the “longest night” in the history of Spanish Democracy. Seventeen and a half hours that caused the foundations of a young legitimate Government to tremble. A spectacular and thoroughly researched political thriller that helps understand the vulnerability of countries and how politics, but more importantly people, are the key to changing the fate of a nation.
