Based on the true story of terrorism striking at the 1972 Olympics in Germany, this film does not spare viewers the violence and intensity of the real event. A Munich police chief learns that during the games a group of Palestinian extremists have kidnapped members of the Israeli team. With the help of a brave policewoman, the cops negotiate with the terrorists in an attempt to buy time until the authorities can devise a rescue plan. As time ticks away, the skirmishes escalate into gunplay and ultimately, bloodshed, with the athletes caught in the crossfire.
