Synopsis

Period drama. The story recreates the historic day in Portugal, late in the evening of 24 April 1974, when a radio station broadcast an outlawed song entitled 'Grandola'. It was the pre-planned signal triggering the military coup which was to change the face of the country - and the destiny of vast territories in Africa.
