“Black September”: a strike at an international capital’s heart with a series of deadly terrorist attacks. Secret services are in disarray and there is no solid lead but one clue emerges: the name of a terrorist group affiliated to an international Islamic fundamentalist movement itself supported by a country at odds with the international community... Does it a ring a bell? This film has nothing to do with what happened on 9/11 but recounts the events of September 1986 when a climate of fear took hold of Paris. It takes us to the heart of the early fight against terrorism led by the French government and secret services. Spies, politicians, judges, survivors and diplomats tell us what happens backstage in the fight against terrorism.
