Basilio Martín Patino's first work of edited footage on the dictator. Following the same work method as in Canciones para después de una guerra, only now totally in secret, the director and small crew searched out archive images and sounds - this time without access to official archives, following the uproar after his earlier work. They then arranged the footage in a particularly imaginative fashion.
