La Toma de la Embajada (The Assault of the Embassy)
Recounts the standoff between a guerrilla group and the Colombian armed forces that took place when the insurgents known as the M-19 entered the Dominican Republic Embassy in Bogota and held hostage 14 diplomats. The guerillas intended to exchange the diplomats for the release of 300 political prisoners, but the negotiations were extreme and neither side was willing to change their positions. The political stance of principles over human life, made the conditions for the hostages a nightmare.
