|aThis unusual Spanish documentary, compiled in the final years of the Franco regime in Spain, explores the thoughts, attitudes and work of a number of official and semi-official executioners - men who have enforced the death penalty. The film covers the entire era following the Civil War in 1939 up to the time of Franco's death in 1975. The original footage ran to over four hours, but only shorter versions (ranging from two hours to an hour and forty minutes in length) were released.
