Plot Synopsis

THE CHALLENGE: ETA is an eight-episode documentary series about the Guardia Civil's fight against the Basque terrorist band ETA. A fight that lasted for half a century, until the dissolution of the band and its definitive renunciation of weapons. ETA was born during Franco's dictatorship as a Basque movement fighting for freedom. But Franco is dead, democracy established and ETA continues to kill. We begin in 1968 with their first murder, that of a Guardia Civil who pulls over terrorists while they were going to collect explosives. Soon there will be more crimes, until reaching the assassination of the president of Franco's government. With the death of Franco, political prisoners are freed. Many of ETA's terrorists walk out and take the path of death. One of the bloodiest is Jesus Maria Zabarte, the Butcher of Mondragon. The second episode follow his criminal carreer while ETA starts an open war against the State, with murders of businessmen, politicians and military, and even bringing terror to the civilian population. On Friday, October 30, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Amazon Prime released the entire eight-episode series.
