The film documents the campaign of revenge the then Israeli Prime Minister, Golda Meir, set in action after the slaughter at the Munich Olympic Games in 1972.
Palestinians, Marie-Claude and Mahmoud Hamshari are killed in separate incidents in their Parisian apartment building.
Three Palestinians are shot dead allegedly by Ehud Barak, Lieutenant-Colonel of the Israeli Army (he is later to become Prime Minister of Israel) and Muki Betzer, a member of the elite commando group, Tsahal.
In Paris, Palestinian Atef Bseisso comes out of a restaurant in Montparnasse with a couple of Lebanese friends. Two men pin him down on his car and fire three bullets into his head.
These 3 assassinations are part of a series of 13 murders that were carried out by the Israeli services over a period of 20 years.
The assassinations were perpetrated in various parts of the world, including Rome, Tunis, Paris, Athens, Lillehammer, Nicosia and Beirut.
These 13 killings of Palestinians had one thing in common: revenge.
All these murders had allegedly been decided on the day after the slaughter at the Munich Olympic Games in 1972, when the then Israeli Prime Minister, Golda Meir, swore that the Munich incident would not remain unpunished.
Nobody actually really knows how many names Golda and her advisors listed.
But the Munich massacre was to become the motive of a secret war against the Palestinian leaders.
This documentary relates this campaign of revenge.
It is backed by accounts from 3 Israeli Prime Ministers and advisors to Golda Meir and Yasser Arafat.
