A dramatization of the incident in 1972 when Arab terrorists broke into the Olympic compound in Munich and murdered eleven Israeli athletes.
Although it's not mentioned in this movie, the terrorist also demanded the release of Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof, founders of the German Red Army Faction, who were being held in German prisons.
Chief of Police Manfred Schreiber:
We have the building surrounded. We're still waiting word from Israel. Until then we're working with one hand.
Avery Brundage: Just so long as it's a firm hand.
