This documentary tries to shed light over those events

In 1984 Spain and especially the Basque country are in the middle of big struggles: strikes, terrorist attacks, economical crisis, factories being shutting down and drugs hitting the poorest neighbourhoods of the nation. The socialist Spanish Government is acting against anyone who fights back. One of the most known groups would be GAL, which under command of the government, by using public resources and supported by nostalgic former members of the franquist regime would attack and assassinate member of different terrorist and political groups.

Comandos Autonomos Anticapitalistas (CCAA) were a set of armed groups, who split originally from ETA and were deeply inspired by libertarian and anti authoritarian ideas, performed several actions against Basque and Spanish policemen, and capitalist structures such as Basque's employers headquarters.

In the middle of the so called “la guerra sucia de Estado” (the states dirty war), Rosa Jimeno was arrested by the police. After being tortured, she was forced to set a date with members of the CCAA somewhere close to Pasaia's harbor (Basque Country), in March 1984.
While Rosa remained tied to a chair completely surrounded by hidden police, she was forced to lure the CCAA into the harbor. Once they arrived in their zodiac, the gunfire started. ‘Pelu’ and ‘Pelitxo’ immediately died, ‘Txapas’ and ‘Kurro’ would be quickly arrested and immediately after the action killed in in cold blood in the very same bay. Joseba Merino along with Rosa would be the sole survivors.

The documentary Pasaiako Badia gathers witnesses, relatives and experts testimonies from those events and the context under which they took place.
